For the sake of a climbing rosebush

We have this massive climbing rosebush, that was neglected and tall when we bought our house three years ago. It was scratching the side if the house and growing wild...a big tangled mess. I started pruning it and it grew taller, producing beautifil red flowers. The rosebush kept climbing taller and taller, scratching up the house as the winds blew. We were contemplating digging up the giant rosebush that spaned over 14 feet tall. The house couldnt take much more abuse afterall and we need to paint the house next year, it will be in the way once it comes time to paint.  I really loved that rosebush, as tall and lanky as it was, it was begging me to not kill it. Ahhh haaa, lets build a arbor that we can use to pull it away from the house. Let's save it.... so, we looked online for plans,found one we liked and started cutting, staining, measuring and my yard became a construction zone. All for the sake of a rosebush. All I can say is that I hope it Thrives and produces beautiful flowers next year.  

Winter is fast approaching... so I have been sooooo busy here.

Harvesing the garden and not to mention all the herbs. Tinctures to make, soaps to set to cure...  I do love my life here on this little plo...
