I took this picture Dec. 21, 2012. This bush is still blooming today in Maryland, USA.

Thanks Hanne and Pat. Glad you both enjoyed it. With the bad weather forecasted for tomorrow i'm sure I've come to the end of the roses for awhile.

How lovely to see a rose still blooming when all around me is snow. Thanks for the pick me up, Ardy. :-)

Sorry Ank. I missed seeing your comment earlier. Yes, it is still there. I'm not sure I want to rush to summer but spring would be nice. Thanks for coming by.

You are very welcome, Jan. I think I've run out of things to post. Better go see what I can find. I should have been smart and taken a picture of the car yesterday before I cleaned the snow off.

Wish my backyard neighbor had done that, Fodus. It's a nuisance. I keep having it cut back because it shades the garden area in the summer. And it won't die. It doesn't seem possible to kill it. One neighbor dug out some roots that were 30-40 feet long.

Angelbender, you may need to alert me when you do. It was given to me when my friend died in 2004. It's never bloomed this late in the year before. It will be interesting to compare.

Ardy - you (and many of us, too) have goteenn a lot of pleasure out of these roses! Thanks so much!!

Our daughter planted some bamboo in an old bathtub to be used as a screen from the neighbors. So, at least it is contained.

When mine blooms next year I will post a puzzle of it for comparison.
Happy New Year!

Wow, love this. Still there. I hope summer will come soon.

The near canes are rose bush but they are not that thick. It's not really a big bush - more tall and scraggly. The more distant canes are bamboo that a neighbor planted years ago and has invaded all the surrounding properties much to my disgust. Thanks, Angelbender for coming by and for your comment.

Is that a big bush with canes the size of your thumb? It looks like my Mom's antique pink rose.
