Here are a few things blooming right now:
I have always wanted a rose covered arbor, but that wasn't going to happen until I got over my fear of growing roses. So a few years ago I threw my trowel into the rose growing ring, and bought several climbing and shrub roses.
And voila'! As it turned out, roses aren't that hard. We just give them lots of compost and water and they bloom like crazy.
And lastly, I found a great place to take pictures of the garden border- from our deck. Why didn't I think of this before?
Thank you to all who sent well wishes about my foot. It is healing nicely from the surgery, and best of all, I can work in the garden again!
