White Ground Rose

?????????? ??????????

The top photo was taken a few days ago, mid-September, while the second one was from early June.  This is another rose bush of mine that just keeps on blooming.  The flowers begin as a light pink, but pale to pure white as they open.

Deer keep the side of this plant next to a wire fence pruned, as I believe that deer think of roses as people think of chocolate.  I have pruned the bottom branches that cover the ground, so I can keep the weeds in check.
