My garden is continuing to surprise me.
Since I mostly gave up gardening, I sent all my rose bushes (and some other things) with a friend of mine who was moving out of state.
I was going out for a breath of fresh air while Oscar was there to rescue me if need be, and spotted a rose growing where my Sutter's Gold once bloomed! it is likely a shoot from the stock plant for the Sutter's Gold graft, but it will be interesting to see how it develops :-}
