Late afternoon sun on a rose made for one glorious sight.
This rose plant was left uncovered last year as it had grown up on a side of the trellis lawn bench which once belonged to my mom. The plant was just hard to protect from winter, and granted last year we never really had much snow or cold. The warm weather started early this year, and this plant has lots of sun. With the great growing season this rose has neared the top of the side of the bench and continues to bloom. The afternoon sun today made the rose almost shine.
