Beautiful! I'm glad it's doing so well for you. I just chopped the heck out of mine, pruning out old canes and also reducing its size (because it's determined to overgrow the deck steps). It's very forgiving! And I sure appreciate the fact that it has very few thorns, LOL.
Hey, just noticed your address... You should check out the Mid-Atlantic gardening forum! There are 2 spring swaps on the "Events" thread at the top, and the VA one shouldn't be too far for you.
I was in your neck of the woods yesterday, having a lovely time at DeBaggio Herbs. :-)
