Back in May I showed you a picture of the rose bush along our driveway. While I do love the rose bush, particularly in May when it blooms, it's had a tendancy to grow outward into the driveway. That wouldn't be a problem except that I park in front of it and have to dodge its thorny shoots every time I go to my car. So as of this week, here is our bush:
It isn't nearly as impressive, but the thorn-free walk to and from my car (together with a pretty black trellis that matches most of the other accessories on the front of the house) makes it worthwhile.
