First Look At This Year's Rose Garden...

Let me apologize (again) for not posting as much as I usually do.
I tell you this working thing is rough!  Its definitely cut into my garden time.
Not that there have been that many pretty days to garden so far.
It has been cold and rainy.  We have gotten over 2 inches this week.

Yesterday was beautiful and I worked in the garden all day.
But wouldn't you know it, I did not take any pictures.
So even though it rained all afternoon.  
I went out this evening to shoot these for you.

Hopefully in a few days I can catch a sunny day to photograph.
But it is only to be in the low 50 tomorrow and another chance of FROST!

I swear this has been the longest wait for warm weather....
Anyway... Welcome to the Rose Garden!
This is my little paradise outside our walkout basement....
I always wanted a picket fenced cottage garden... so this is a dream come true for me.
Complete with pink roses growing up the arbor...
I have lots of plants known for their scent in this area.... including 6 different lilacs.
Just in this area alone there are over 60 roses.  (Grow well over 100 altogether!)
Last year was a difficult year for us.  We had an extreme amount of drought.  But my roses look very healthy this year.  I am proud to say I did not lose any this winter!
I know it looks like a mess of metal... but in a few weeks there will be roses all the way to the top of my trellises.  I need them for support for my many climbers.
Is there anything more pretty than new growth on roses?
I have a blue theme going on this early in the year.
I so wish these pics were brighter, but I could not wait any longer to share a post with you!

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Gardening!
