The monster in my backyard

About five years ago, I planted a yellow rosebush out back.  It was small and unassuming and looked positively  puny in between the two star jasmine bushes.

Just look at this monster now:

Let’s see that in profile, shall we?

This thing is gargantuan.    It’s like a rosebush on steroids.   I swear to you, the only performance-enhancing drug it has had is Miracle-Gro.  But I give it that every year, and it’s never exploded like this before.  Maybe it’s all the rain we’ve had this winter and spring.

At any rate, I am loving it.
