Hi, this is my very first attemp at posting on my blog. This was a picture that I took in Napa Valley on our 10th anniversary trip to San Fracisco. I remember that this rose looked just like this... like it was on fire! Very pretty. We noticed at the vineyards that roses were often planted in and amongst the vines, or more often at the end of a row. I've heard that roses and grape vines both like "dry feet" that is they grow best in soil that drains well.
