I pruned this climbing rose back very hard this winter.  The work has paid off.  Sombreuil's spring flush is beginning and it will be its best ever.

I could not get the rose all in the frame in one shot.

I'm going to be happily sweeping up rose petals for months.

  3. I feel the same way about sweeping. There's happy sweeping and annoying sweeping. The annoying kind mostly takes place indoors.

  4. Wonderful Sombreuil! Is it own root or grafted?
