I have recently found your blog and am so impressed by your landscaping. Your property is absolutely gorgeous and inspiring for me. Just beautiful! I do have a practical question to ask- how are you attaching your climbing rose to your brick wall? Thank you, Deane

    Thank you. All my ‘Don Juan’ climbing roses (I have 3) have been attached to my homes brick exterior by using eye screws and fishing line.The eye screws were sprayed brown so they would be less noticeable than the ‘normal’ shiny metal finish. It’s taken 3 years for this rose to grow canes long enough for this purpose. Patience prevails…

      Thanks for taking the time to reply. I’ll use your information. I have planted two Climbing Pinkies on one corner of our house and a Climbing Souvenir de la Malmaison in another area. I hope they grow to be pretty enough to send you a future photo! Deane

Not only do you grow fabulous Japanese maples and conifers, you grow outstanding roses! Mystic beauty is breathtaking.
