Climbing Cecile Brunner is glorious at the moment. Unfortunately, the best way to see it is from the roof of our house. Planted at the back entrance, it quickly overcome the little roof-top over the back door, so we built a big 10-feet tall arbor to grow it on. It is so high up that, unless you look up, you'll miss the blooms. This evening I decided to get up on the roof and photograph it from above. First, the view from below, the way we normally see it:
The view from standing on the roof:
Now, there are two windows upstairs that overlook this rose but they are small and we are rarely upstairs. Maybe this view will lure me upstairs more during the next several weeks. Quite a difference!
