Nice, so far--it's giving a good first impression. Fragrance is, alas, described as "none". Oh, well--'Firefighter' makes up for that.
Speaking of climbing roses, they were putting on a good show last weekend at the Huntington. The Huntington's rose garden looked great. It looked loved.
On the arches, two stellar So Cal performers, 'Fourth of July' and of course 'Iceberg'
The white climber is 'Alister Stella Grey' as I remember. Correct me if it's not.
The orange climber on the arch is 'Above All'
'Eden' ('Pierre de Ronsard'). There is no other like it.
'Sally Holmes'. I think the small apricot climber to the right is 'Colette'
Wonderful, eh? May my little 'Tropical Lightning' grow up to be so lovely.
