Every once in awhile, something turns out even better than expected.
Like when I decided to tie my big rosebushes instead of
letting them sprawl all over the yard.
This one, on the east side of the house,
looks much prettier growing on my picket fence.
I wove it in and out of the pickets hoping for a cottage garden look.
The one on the front porch looks better now, too.
I strung wires along the porch and wove the rose canes along them.
Now that the canes have leafed out, the wires are mostly hidden.
Part of the rose is tied to the corner porch post, too.
Eventually I plan to have roses all around the house just like Mrs. Kelly did.
