Just when I thought I killed this rosebush...
...this was a cutting off the monster rosebush, one that I stuck in the ground and rooted about 2 years ago.
The problem was that it was in a very narrow bed right off the driveway, and was not in a place for this to grow and thrive without impinging on our safety.
So I moved it - or tried to. When I dug it out I only got about one strand of root in the process.
I thought I killed it.
But it knew better - and seems to be thriving in it's new home -getting ready to guard passage into the back yard.
