This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Dorothy Perkins wichuraiana rambler rose (1901)

I have found two other roses around my neighborhood that look like mine. This week it is in its glory. My plant (center, bottom) looks quite neat in comparison with the two others as I just replaced its fence from under it last year. I suspect these are all very old plants. The plants in the two top photos are intertwined with other vines and shrubs. I have not seen another rose that cascades so nicely and has such a relaxed, carefree and graceful appearance.
