On this, the south side I transplanted my Coral Vine that was such a beautiful monster elsewhere too close to the house last year. You can catch up on it here. Coral Vine I really want to plant an EDEN climbing rose on the other side of this arch but haven't been able to find one yet. A trip to Otto & Sons Nursery is in order in a couple weeks. In the meanwhile I'll work on the weeds.
On this side I planted a Kennedia prostrata with pretty pea flowers that I bought at The Huntington Library & Gardens last week. It was so beautiful that my friend Mitzi and 2 other ladies each also bought one! I've found that I have to buy the unusual thing or I'll pine for it and it'll be gone when I return! I haven't yet decided what climbing rose to plant on the other side of this arch.
So, I finally finished pruning MY OWN roses this week. Yay! Now there's so many weeds.
My totals are: 133 roses pruned this week.
2283 total bushes pruned so far.
And I still have maybe one more week to go of pruning jobs. Happy pruning!
