Lady Banks Blooms

I am finally getting some blooms on my white 'Lady Banks' rose after a couple years. It is in a difficult spot that is in the shade in the winter and sun in the summer and I thought it was never going to be happy enough to bloom. A thornless climbing rose with beautiful rosette type flowers, it is one that I often recommend to beginning gardeners because it is so easy to grow, doesn't require extensive pruning and puts on such a beautiful display in the winter when most other roses are dormant. At least it usually does. Hopefully it will only get better in this spot because it has reached the top of the arbor where it can get sunlight all day everyday.
