When Roses Bloom

The sign on the door announces this as the home of Smokey.

I planted this climbing rose variety "Blaze" to enclose the entrance to our house. There is another on the other side which will grow to meet the first one and complete the arch over the front porch..

Much nicer signs than these "warning, dog on guard" :D

Beautiful color, these flowers.

What a plethora of colour you have at this time of year. I always remember when I attended flower arranging classes in the olden days, at this time of year, there was a period of about two months where we had to arrange twigs and branches as flowers there were none!!!

That arch of roses, when it meets, is going to be beautiful - what a welcoming sight to greet visitors.

Smokey est un "petit prince" dans votre maison !
Lorsque le deuxième rosier grimpant (car je suppose que ce sont des rosiers ?) aura escaladé la pergola, votre entrée sera magnifique.
Bon dimanche et bisous.

That's a very shiny front door knocker - do you get out the Brasso and "polish up the handle on the big front door" a la Gilbert & Sullivan?

Anne - The brass trim on the front door is heavily lacquered and does not require polishing - so far.
