Pink FireWorks

I've been watching the tiny buds as they develop on my climbing rose growing along the fence. All the recent rains kept me from photographing the buds and that's OK as they were nothing compared to this.............


I have no idea what variety of climbing rose this is as I bought a tiny start at a yard sale a few years ago.

Last year I whacked the rose canes way back and cleaned out all the dead ones and this year it is thanking me with this beauteous show.

I must admit though that every year I get really upset with this climbing rose...............upset that the blooms don't last nearly long enough!!!!


  1. Rose blooms are far too short IMO -- we have a pink William Baffin and it puts on a glorious display around Memorial Day.

  2. That is quite the rose show you have in your yard. Enjoy.

  3. What a beautiful rose. Love your flower garden.

    Hugs :)


  4. Could it be New Dawn? Looks like mine - and yes, the blooms don't last long enough. It grows rapidly, I also pruned mine back last year, it's huge again!
