Meet Rosie. I was introduced to her at the local garden center. She was in the Weekly Special aisle and I got a crush.
I think meeting her was fate. See I have this empty spot where the fence between us and our neighbor ends and I’ve been unsure of what to place there since both Mini and Bonus like to cross over there. I wanted another white rose (I have a climbing one at the front and was able to transplant a really pretty one from one of the flower beds that I dug out last year) somewhere in the back yard but I didn’t want something low and prickly in that very spot.
So good thing Rosie’s a leggy lady!
Now Mini and Bonus can just walk past her slenderness.
Rosie’s also known as Kailani. I love how she’s the perfect ending to the fence. Now I just have to make sure to read up on how to properly prepare her for winter. I remember my mom bending down and burying her tree roses over winter as I grew up. It always spooked me out because it looked like we we had freshly dug graves in our front yard, those long rectangular mounds of soil. This was back in the 70’s, not sure that method’s in use any more. Will need to investigate.
