All things Western and more.
Wow, had no idea. That's amazing!
It is isn't it?
That is quite something Sandra, thanks for sharing.Yvonne.

Next time you visit Hildesheim Cathedral.
At times in the countryside you might come across a house that has fallen down or been destroyed. All that will remain is the brick chimney and some rose bushes.
That's always such a poignant sight, isn't it, Andrew?
Sure lasted a long time indeed
That's for sure:)
And every rose has its thorn...
Or as Birgit mentioned, Thorns have their roses:)
Wow! That's petty amazing! Hugs, RO
Isn't that something?
And it could be ended by a hedge trimmer and some round up. It survived the luck game.
Wow! I did not know that. Where is this Rose bush? I have to share something that my mom gave to me. She bought it at a craft show. It is a piece of slate painted in toll painting of roses with the quote, " Don't grumble that roses have thorns...be thankful that thorns have roses". Isn't that a great quote!
That's a purrfect quote. I love it.Hildesheim Cathedral in Germany.
no way ~~~~~~~~~~~~ seriously !!! ☺☺♥♥
No! I can hardly keep mine alive one season!
Heh. Have you tried Knock Outs?
Interesting fact, had no idea.
No one knows that one, Sandy. Woah!
That's one tenacious rose bush, hey?
I had no clue. How awesome!
It is, isn't it, Lizabeth?
Just call me "Rose"! ;)
I'm right there with ya, Rose:)
Interesting. I never expected to read this!
Who'd a thought, right?
Amazing. My next door neighbor had a rose bush she had brought with her when she moved into her house in 1946. When she died, her son sold the house and the neighbor put up a fence. when he did, he removed the rose bush and replanted it in his back yard because her son had told him how important the rose bush had been to his mother. I applaud my neighbor who could have just whacked it down, but didn't. Roses are so much sturdier than we think they are.
He had a kind heart. That's a feel good story. Thanks for sharing.
That's crazy how long plants can live! It reminds me of the tree folk in Lord of the Rings!
I love it.
