roses in view...



 

Behind schedule this summer in setting up the outdoor furniture
but so excited to participate in the fun Blog Block Party
about patios at Savvy Country Style


instead,  have been busy planting~ have dreamed of red roses


along my front stone wall to highlight the new red gates
for so long and this year, accomplished!


placed climbing roses on the arbor on the side patio,





the back yard sitting area is in bloom too.
be sure to check out  the Blog Block Party

Hi Karen, love your garden, your climbing roses are so pretty. I ordered from Bloomington some thorn less climbing roses, they were a rosy pink very pretty, they tolerate the shade, so I had the plan on planting them by my front door in a big pot so they could climb close to the front door and thorn less, what else could I ask, but alas, they were out of stock and sent me some other kind nothing like the ones I ordered, I was pretty upset and wrote to them, I won't order from a catalog ever again, I will buy them from lowe's instead. Let me know how your roses are doing, do they climb all they way to the top of the arbor? Sorry about the long, long comment, have a great day!

Karen, your roses are just beautiful! Love them along your wall, I haven't tried roses in a long time. I need to just jump in and buy some bushes. Thanks for the inspiration to try it. xoxo Debra
