Ahoy plant lovers! Sorry I've been absent for awhile. January is all work work work rose pruning jobs. And even though it's not an El Niño year it sure feels like it with all the rain we've had setting me back so much. But with lots of rain makes a good spring bloom! I finally finished pruning my own rose bushes just a couple days ago. I weeded along the way. But there is still so much more weeding to do. And the rain keeps bringing more weeds. So, it's good and bad.
So between rain showers I noticed that my Pandorea Golden Showers burst until bloom! Yay! I love orange flowers. I forget where I first saw this plant. But I hunted for it and always found it super expensive. Then I took cuttings from a friend and they didn't take. Then I finally found it at a decent price. It's only been in the ground for maybe 2 years. As you can see it's kinda sparse growing up one of my rebar arches. But the flowers are so pretty. The common Pandorea is pink. So, orange is special.
