    Looks like a climbing rose to me (can that be called an infection??)

    PS the tree in the first pic is a cypress of some sort, not a pine ;-)

    PPS who's the old codger in the third pic??

    Wow! A great specimen of R banksiae! I dream of growing a banksiae that size, but here, the canes get frozen right back every winter. So, I have to resort to R filipes and 'Treasure Trove'.
