Altissimo rose

I found this rose variety one year at the Huntington Gardens and fell in love with it, my mom followed when she saw it at my house and has planted a few at both her house and my brothers house. It's a beautiful single rose with dark foliage that is still a show stopper after all these years. Growing on a this light stucco wall with this pineapple finial the rose stands out and makes everyone come closer for a better look.

I am enjoying seeing all these beautiful paintings from your mom's house. I know you are enjoying the visit - it shows in the paintings.

Gosh, I've missed so much! How did that happen? These are great. I love the rose with that filial to set it off. The arbor down a few is lovely too...nice shadows.
