The guys from Dirty Hoe Landscaping are coming tomorrow and I have to decide what to do about the rose bushes in back. Part of me just wanted to get rid of them and start fresh but there is another part of me that feels like they deserve to stay.
Here's what I am thinking. I really enjoy taking care of the roses in the front yard. Every day when I come home a new rose has blossomed. It's very rewarding. However, rose bushes themselves are not very pretty and they are really high maintenance. If anyone says they are not then they must have a secret I don't have. While I am really enjoying them I am not sure I want to have them in the backyard.
On the other hand, the bushed in the back have survived and proven themselves to be hardy. They produce beautiful flowers as you can see above. (Those are from the backyard.)
So, what do I do? My friend, Sabrina, suggested I move the bushes to a little corner and have a rose grove. That is a thought. It kind of would be the best of both worlds. I could keep them but not have them throughout the garden like they are now. There is an area of the garden that would be perfect for this.
Maybe that's what I will do. My own little rose grove.
