The Rose of York on the right now stretches
over to the climbing hydrangia
creating a bower through which to walk.

The Perennial bed is continuously changing at this time of year.

Among the flowers in the "Bridge" bed are
Purple Palace, Spirea and Campanula

The Altissima rose on the trellis is doing well this year
after I got fed up with it and cut it to the ground last fall.
I will do it again this year to stop it from climbing onto the roof.

The Altissima has the most striking red flowers with gold centers.
It is a pleasure to have next to us on the patio
as long as I can keep it there.
