Cherokee rose ablooom

Cherokee Rose (Rosa laevigata)

We’ve had this rose for over a decade, but I can’t remember seeing as many blooms in any year as we have this year.

Garden note: the squirrel cage will spend this growing season protecting my neighbor’s tomatoes, and we’ll grow peppers and herbs, and no specimens of Solanum lycopersicum (will have to fight for sunlight in growing space too close to the house and slightly too shady).
