Planting Roses

Over the weekend I bought two rose varieites, a pink David Austin ‘Heritage‘ and an orange and gold climbing rose called ‘Pinata‘. I have delusions of grandeur when it comes to the Rock House and Rock Garden in our yard. I want the Rock House to be covered with beautiful, blooming roses. I want the borders to be thick with lavender, rosemary, roses and moss (depending, obviously, on the amount of sunlight). It’s going to be a long haul from the briers, saplings and trash we started with to the end point of my fantasy but these roses are a start.
We settled them in with a good water and some aged manure.

We also have several French lavender plants, one of which we transplanted from NC.

I love Spring planting and summer watching as the garden comes to life, grows and sometimes goes wild. I never garden in the heat of summer, so things have to be as prepped as possible during this short season of temperate weather. This year I’m hoping the roses go wild.
