Pops Of PINK in the Spring Rose Garden

 Welcome back and guess what?
The roses are blooming!
 Spring flush is just beginning here in Indiana....
And I cannot wait to show you all I have of my favorite color... Pink!

 Yes, I even painted the garden bench a fun pink this year!
 I love the fun, bright new look.
 This area is our walkout for our basement at the back of the house.
 But about six years ago I turned it onto a cottage rose garden.
 Complete with a picket fence and arbor.
 And lots of heirloom roses.
 I have two large raised beds with gravel paths.
 And lots of planting surrounding the roses as well. 
 Lots of soft peach and pinks....
 Whimsy is my style... nothing too serious.
 Last year I added the two bed frames for the roses to grow up.
 I have several peonies blooming this week as well.
I wish this time of year lasted longer.... we have been cold and rainy here!
Barely reaching 60 degrees the past few days and WIND!
 But the garden is looking wonderful.
I also wanted to share a few bits of pink on the porch...
 A fun little accent on the door....
 And some rose themed pillows this year.....
Yes, I love my pinks... hope you do too!

  1. Your rose garden and porch are looking very pretty in pink!

  2. OMgoodness...such vibrant roses---mine have barely greened out yet...we are so far behind. Love your garden and the white walkways so link it to the house, wise choice. Thanks for the smiles and I can almost smell all your gorgeous roses! Sandi

  3. Your garden is amazing! Here in Minnesota things are just kicking off for the season so it's so nice to see a garden in full bloom.
