I know it does not look very rosy, but the buds have only just appeared. It has only just begun to realise that it is a rose, a climbing rose. In a couple of weeks, perhaps less, it will be a climbing rosy rose.

Something like this, although this was a few years ago.

I planted the climbing rose 15 years ago and it still returns every year in its full glory.
