2008 ~~ "THE FAIRY" Rose ~~ a week ago!

2007 ~~ "THE FAIRY" Rose ~~ a year ago!

The Pink FAIRY Rose has bloomed! And my oh my how it has grown since last year! In the bottom picture up there it was barely halfway up the arbor this time last year. I was so surprised that not only did it make it to the top this year but it went all the way over & halfway down the other side. And that tiny little red rose on the other side of the arbor last year has grown all the way up to meet the FAIRY at the tippy top! These pictures were taken last week & as all roses do they have already faded but I'm hoping for another bloom....

Well I'm still "out of the blog loop" when it comes to keeping up with what's going around here! It's because so much is going on around here! So many new projects & we are busy as "BEES".....which I will blog about soon!

An amazingly beautiful rose! I love all the photos! I would love to have a pink rose, just like that one, over the arbor by the driveway!

Oh how I wish I could get a rose to climb like that! It is just beautiful!

Hi Kathy....your roses are simply beautiful! I love the bowling gazing ball too....I think I will have to copy that idea. :)

Kathy I love it!! I am wishing I could grow flowers like that up in Alaska. I am trying to get used to this San Antonio heat and humidity! We've been here a week and I think I have been dehydrated since I landed!! lol! I can't wait to get to Lubbock where the air is less thick but we are stopping in Fredricksburg on the way. I can't wait!
