I freely admit it, the rose is NOT my favorite flower, nor is it my favorite scent, even though it is the flower of my month. However, when I moved into this house I wanted a rose garden. I picked the perfect spot-right behind the garage. I had the area prepared earlier this year (rototilling, preen, mulch) and my parents bought me a trellis. This week they bought me a present, my first rosebush for the rose garden-Climbing New Blaze. The house came with 2 rosebushes, but this is the first one I've planted. Hopefully I did it right! I also planted a bee balm plant that my friend gave me from her garden. My rose garden may not look like much now-but wait and see what it'll grow into!
