We laid things out and figured on the number of bushes needed.
I went to work and Jim headed to pick up the plants.
The plan was for one knockout type bush in each corner and the rest tea roses.
When I got home after dark last night, I couldn’t resist looking at the rose garden.
Can you see all of the rose bushes? Obviously it is not done, but Jim wanted to get the plants in before last night’s rain. I’m wondering if it is not a bit of overkill. But I do love roses! He went to Aldi’s after receiving a tip form Osage Bluff Quilter that they had knockouts and tea roses fairly inexpensive. Bloom roses bloom!
We had a wonderful visit with Patti and The Blacksmith. The Blacksmith dug Bluebells for us to add to our collection of flowers. I believe they are going to be a great addition to our Hosta garden where Jim planted them. My only hope is that they turn out as pretty as the ones pictured in Patti's post.

It doesn’t get any prettier than this – even if the skies are threatening rain as I scoot back into the house.
