Blue?

"Rhapsody in Blue" is the name of this climbing rose. I have two of them growing on my front fence.
The picture colour is fairly true to life this time--on my monitor at least. I often have trouble with purple shades. And it's not exactly what I would call "blue", but it's on the blue side for a rose anyway. Dead-heading these roses is about the only thing I got done yesterday. Apart from a bit of random knitting. It was rather a slow day for me.

That one is superb - the colour is so purple! I have plans for climbing roses over arches here....eventually! I am enjoying the "stroll" through your garden :).

Glad you're enjoying the "stroll"--lucky you don't have to deal with the weeds this way:)
