The Roses are Here, The Roses are Here

My pink fairy roses are starting to bloom.

There are masses of them.

My pink climbing roses are also in bloom.
It smells heavenly here.

They are growing up the arbor.

The pink fairy rose bush in the back yard.

There are several birdhouses in there, though you can barely see them. 

It looks amazing with all that pink.
This is the first blooming.
They will bloom for several weeks, then grow all summer and bloom again late August/September.

White climbing roses by the side entrance to the garage.
This is where I want to put the small over door arbor.
By the end of summer I will surely need it.

The roses on the path to the fire pit are in full bloom.
Some have lost their petals and they looks so pretty on the ground.

Today, I plant 4 more rose bushes.
The sun is out and I can move dirt to where I need it. 

This is my project for the week.
Put in dirt and plants and a new walkway.

I have exciting news.
We have passed the electrical, plumbing and rough inspection.
It is time for insulation!

We have saved, worked and waited for this for 4 years.
Lots of work ahead, but we can't wait to get started.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and thanks for stopping by.

I am partying with Tracie from Fishtail Cottage for a Cottage Garden Party.


  1. Oh my, what a beautiful garden and gorgeou roses. LOVE eveything here.


  2. Your roses are breathtaking! I love how free flowing they are and I, too, love how the petals look on the ground. I'm happy things are going so well for you!


  3. Beautiful roses! I like the idea of an arbor for the door- that will look fabulous!

  4. Your roses are just amazing. My fairy rose is not half as large!

  5. All your hard work since the day I met you hauling all that mulch, and free plants is stunning! I wish I could see it in person.

    1. Thank you Melissa. I just put in two walkways and a ton of plants this week. It is such a good feeling to work in my gardens. I really could do it all day long.

  6. Oh my stars it's rose heaven.. I bet it smells fabulous, absolutely beautiful
    Happy summer hugs, Cherry

  11. I am in awe of your fairy roses!!! I have about six of them in my garden, planted about 8 years ago, and none of them are over 2 feet tall. Also, they do not have a pleasing shape or masses of blossoms. I have them in different areas of my garden, and they are pitiful looking. Please say how you take of your fairy roses - I must be doing something so very wrong! Your garden is absolutely beautiful!

  12. I too love roses I just can't enough of them. Your's are gorgeous! I just discovered your blog, and am so glad I did. Your gardens are fab, and your posts are filled with wonderful pics and inspiration. Happy 4th to you!


I enjoy each and every comment you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
