Nancy’s Climbing Roses – July 2013

Nancy's Roses_2013-07-13_5425

 

There’s just something about heritage climbing roses and an old, weathered picket fence. This fence once graced the graveyard of an old Baptist church nearby. We saved it from destruction and made it part of our garden. The roses were gifts from friends. The soft pink rose is a Dr. W. Van Fleet Rose. It came to us as a cutting from my cousin’s heritage homestead. It was originally planted by his mother in the early 1900s. The bright pink rose is an American Pillar Rose, created in 1900. It was donated by friends in Shelburne County.
