As you look into the back yard you begin to see them, the little pops of color.
As you walk closer they come into focus.
Roses! Rambling roses so heavy with blooms that the canes can barely hold them.
Aren't they pretty? I absolutely love them. All they get is some compost, a little pruning and a drink if it's really, really dry. No pesticides of any kind are required to be rewarded with so many blooms. Plus, while their big show is in June, once I prune them they'll bloom more lightly throughout the summer.
There's plenty to clip and bring some inside to enjoy as well.
