The cancer rose.....
Three years ago I planted a Zephririne Drouhn climbing rose that I ordered from a mail order catalog. It came in the mail right after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. You might remember my initial "silly rose story" that I posted in 2012, you can read it here. I am not sure why I called it the cancer rose, it just popped into my head at that moment when Galen and I were planting the bare root in the ground, and I felt that if the rose survived, I would too. Yes, I know, that's silly.
Well, I am happy to say the rose survived and is thriving! It has climbed up the post and over the pergola, just as I planned.
It turned out to be a beautiful rose and it has a spicy clove scent. It smells heavenly!
I guess I knew all along the rose would survive. And, of course, I knew that I would too!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
