Saturday evening (well, around 4pm, when it started to get dark), I was finishing putting lights up on the fence between my & my easterly neighbor. What I do is wrap the lights around the split rail fence and it looks pretty nice to me.
And, as I was doing that, I was pretty close to the ground.. a lot closer than normal for me (ground's pretty far down for my tastes, especially when I fall on my butt). And, low & behold, I noticed a rose. Well, like that's a big surprise in my yard.. I have lots of roses. What *was* surprising was that I didn't plant this rose. It's a volunteer from someone. Closest rose is Oranges & Lemons, who's about 2 feet away, but is one of my oldest (meaning it's 3 years old, not 2). Maybe the original rootstock (it's a budded plant) sent out a sucker?
I'll have to wait til next year to find out. It's only about 4-5" tall, but very sturdy and growing nicely. It probably got hit badly with the frost last night, but I know it wasn't that old as the leaves were still very pliable & red-tinged.
