Rambling Red Rose

This week a rambling red rose is blooming in the garden. The flowers are a very dark red more like the second photo. Do you have any idea what variety this rose might be? I don't think it's called rambling red although I titled the blog post as that. The blossoms are about two inches across with yellow centers and the petals are double. I don't detect any strong fragrance.

I started organizing the studio today. Actually Gary started opening boxes to prod me along. Later another home remodeling project was moved to the front burner. I may have more pottery to show you coming up if I make it to Helen Arts Center tomorrow if the weather isn't too rainy.

There's a white flowering native vine blooming at the bottom of our driveway I'll have to take a photo to show you. I also saw a pink azalea and learned from Clay Club it grows only in North Carolina; I'll have to go back and get a photo to see if it's a rare pinkshell azaleas found on Grandfather Mountain. Hope you are enjoying the spring weather. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. It is nice to see color...all I see at this time is green...but it is a lush green...A few red flowers would be awesome... it is still a little early to put a flower out. I am sure you are having a great time furnishing and decorating your new home. It is tiring but fun!!!

  2. Oh, these are pretty. The weather is still a bit chilly and wet here. Nothing is blooming yet. Glad you are enjoying these beautiful colors.
    Love the rambling Rose song. It certainly brings back memories. Blessings, Catherine

  3. Hello Linda:

    We are,alas, unable to identify your rose but it really does seem very prolific. WE imagine that it was planted by a previous owner.

    Good that you are making progress with your reorganization.

  4. Hi Dee, thanks, we have a great deal of green around us with the woods so the color is definitely welcome.

    Hi Catherine, thanks, for some reason that song popped into my head when I wrote this post. Ha.

    Hi Jane and Lance, thanks, yes the previous owner must have planted the rose so glad they did, progress is very slow however,

  5. That is a really pretty rose.

    It'll be nice to have the studio unpacked and organized.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
