bolero, finally

Bolero is finally doing what it is supposed to do.

Growing along with dahlias (taller white flowers), Trionfo Violetto beans, and casa blanca lilies (which apparently HATE it here).

The thrips have subsided slightly (still some damage evident), and the plants were given a bit of nitrogen, which is apparently what they needed.

Although these versions of roses are not native to New Mexico, roses are embedded in the culture of New Mexico gardens, and I will always think they belong. Somehow, they just look right, especially when combined with plants adapted to this climate.
