Rose

I planted a small rosebush today in the barrel which previously held the dried remains of the chrysanthemum. I'm hoping its thorniness will help deter the racoons from trampling it - they use that barrel as a pathway onto the rest of the deck. I've never grown roses before, and while I know something about the theory of doing so, this one came with no labels or instructions, so my grasp of theory had better be decent if this one is to survive. Its little blossoms range in hue from soft pink to a wine-like mauve.
