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.
