The Garden Bench Finds A Home… Part 2 of Lowe’s Creative Challenge


It’s been awhile since we have been down to see the rose garden area.

So today I thought I would show you all the pretty things blooming there.
It all looks out towards our lake and backyard.
It actually is the space between the walls of our walk-out basement.
It makes a perfect little walled garden complete with arbor and picket fence.
Which I grow roses on of course!
There are two raised beds with 12 roses in each plus numerous perennials.
And lots of garden art and treasures to display!
It has turned out to be one of my favorite areas in my gardens.

Which is why it is the perfect place for my new bench to go!  (Toby the garden kitty loves it too!)
Isn’t that color fantastic! 

It looks so pretty with all the colors down there already!

Now I can sit and enjoy all the roses and views of the lake.  I am so thankful to Lowes for making this project possible.  If you have not seen my tutorial on how to build this lovely Picket Fence Bench, please visit my post….
