Believe and it will happen

Remember this dismal picture from earlier this spring?


Bare ground rose garden

Here is my rose garden today with beautiful, sweet smelling, roses blooming.


Rose Garden


Even the insects appreciate their beauty. 
I just hope they are nice and don't decide they are sitting on an afternoon snack.

Hi Deanna, Rita said what I was going to say! Wow, what a transformation! Your roses are really beautiful.

Beautiful! Since I'm not a gardener, and I'm no expert on roses...are they supposed to be spaced that far apart?

Deanna said...

lol chicagolady - yes they are supposed to be spaced that far apart - actually the "experts" would say they are too close...but then, i'm no expert either!

How beautiful! I had one rose bush many many moons ago that was yellow and pink mixed blooms. I can't recall the name of it. But I never made mine bloom so beautifully as yours.

Beautiful!

When those bushes grow up (and out, like humans) they will fill the area...

They really look great! I hope the bugs are fertilizing and not chowing down!

Oh Deanna! It looks very pretty !! Wonder if you are going to have to zap those bugs....

I know nothing about Roses. I just know they are beautiful and smell wonderful :) I bet you are catching some beautiful scent from them. And I hear they are lots of work.
