A little Spring for you!

I know many are getting slammed with more winter weather. 
So to brighten your day a bit…
some Spring….a gorgeous vintage rose smothering a tree..

roses in tree
This was taken last April in Jamestown, California.
A historic gold mining town that now houses antique shops, fun restaurants and other fun places to visit.

From what I can tell this rose only blooms in the Spring but what a show it puts on.
It covers one tree and is migrating to another. 
It gets no auxiliary water, just what falls from the sky.
I wonder how it will do this year with the drought not bringing us much rain this winter.
I would love to take a cutting or several from this and start my own.
Hmmm, I should toss my cutters in the car and take a trip soon.

Enjoy this breath of Spring!
