My Roses and their Companions (Small Garden Tour)

I’ve been asked for some more pictures of my garden. I have a slideshow of the past spring and summer I can share for those interested.

It’s a work in progress. Of course.


For close to twenty years, a beautiful catalpa tree was the focal point in my garden. My girlfriends called it my Princess Tree. Every spring it snowed white petals. Later in the season - long, whimsical pods would drip down. We’d spend lazy summer afternoons in the seating nook beneath her limbs.

Four years ago that enchanting tree died.

At first it was devasting, but after its removal I realized all the sunshine that now poured in was perfect for growing roses.

I’d always admired them, but a true love affair began. <3

I’m really looking forward to this coming gardening season because I think it’s going to be the best one yet. I’ve got a few old garden roses on order that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
