One of the things I’ve promised myself at my new house is a rose garden. And by that, I don’t mean neat rows of hybrid teas. I mean a romantic, lush, dripping-with-blooms-of-all-kinds garden. You know: roses, perennials, the whole smash. This is the place I want to put it, and what it looked like when we bought the house. It looks about the same now, just darker because it’s winter.
This part of the yard has great southern exposure, so I think the roses will do well.
On the whole, it’s a pretty blank slate.
The house came with this shed, which I’m hoping to convert to some kind of fair-weather getaway, since all my garden tools are in the vegetable garden anyway.
And of course there must be arbors and secret pathways and all of that.
I’ve been working on a plan, so I’ll share that soon. But meanwhile, I’m daydreaming about roses! Climbing ones, English ones, fragrant ones… I’m looking for romantic colors and an unfussy nature. Any favorites?
