In your garden 2010: Entry 39

I garden because digging in the dirt is good for the mind; I love this picture because 3 years ago when I planted this rose is was an unimpressive little plant and when I described to my neighbor how it was going to climb the trellis and wander across it, he looked at the plant and looked at me and said "don't hold your breath."

Ha! It grew!

It is so pretty in bloom and scatters its petals down on the walkway underneath it.
