the rose in the baggy - Jim here's the carcass

Here is Trinity Street - named for the Trinity Episcopal Church. Mr. Bagwell's Store was the last one on the right.
Well - here is a shot of downtown and the redone sidewalks. Behind the van, the car, and the eucalyptus tree is the dying carcass of the rose i am really trying to save at least one piece. Mr. Bagwell ran a great antique and curiosity shop in the building. He had this rose here in the front and in the back at his workshop.

Here is the victim... murdered and tossed by the construction crew.

Here is a close up of the bottom. Looks kind of grafted to me - but i don't know.


  1. David, in the first photo, would you call them branches or more like whips. Like you might see on a climber? Were the plants free standing.

    The second photo looks like graft. But hard to say from the photo. Do keep me posted on this rose. I collect.

  2. The Rose was free standing with branches.

  3. I like the photo of the building. You live in a town the age of mine.

  4. Larry - the town has a square in the center. The oldest corner of the Square dates to the 1850's. The rest of the Square has been replaced - most after a fire in the 1880's. This photo is at the end of Trinity Street - which faces Trinity Church an 1849 pink steepled building.

    p.s. - i'm sticking a photo of the "old post office" on my crepe myrtle post - February 27, 2010 - the building is now abandoned - it's from the 60's
