Climbing success

The Pink Showers climbing rose has been one of the happy accidental successes in my very amateurish garden. It is just three years old but again it has been blooming throughout the summer cascading its large and showy flowers by the side door. It still holds a few clusters of blossoms and buds.





All the above photos were taken in late September and all the below ones just two days ago.


Even though my body doesn’t fully agree the plants are shouting it loud: we certainly have had it mild this season.

Roses for Jack 3/5.

  1. I love, love, love multi layered roses. I have just one left on one of my climbers so it will be in a vase tomorrow so I can enjoy the last of the garden's summer. Have a wonderful weekend x

    1. I've been so pleased I happened to choose this one and the position by the south-facing wall is ideal.

  2. Your rose is stunning isn't it, such a beautiful colour and such prettily shaped flowers as well. xx

    1. Isn't it wonderful! I will miss my roses - even if I only have a few - if we will find a buyer for this house this season.
