My Roses

In my last post I told you Papa Bear and CC were bringing me home a present.... And did they ever deliver!




For years they have heard me complaining about our neighbors roses and how bad I want a rise bush. Now I have 5!!!
They also picked up Miracle Grow for roses. I hope it works!



CC and Papa Bear did most of the work.....



King Charlie was enjoying being outside....



We turned the soil.. Removed rocks and pulled weeds. And Papa Bear put up a cute little fence border for me.



Half way finished. Right about here I had to run to Lowes for one more border piece we were short.



Even Lena helped out.....



We dug holes.... Poured in some Miracle Grow...



Put that black thingy down to prevent weeds....



Added cedar mulch....



And put in my roses.... I absolutely LOVE them! I told Papa that was THE best I have ever been given and now I can NEVER move from this house because I can't leave my roses!




And this beauty is the reason for my Pink Saturday post. The "Peace" rose. I love it! It's my most favorite. It's multicolored and so delicate... It's just perfect!




So I have a yellow rose bush, white (Kennedy rose), deep fushia double knock out, my multicolored Peace rose and a beautiful deep red Olymipad rose.
I am so excited to have them.... You seriously have NO idea how bad and how long I've been wanting a rose bush. Everyday when I come home I run to the back and check on my babies!

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any tips on growing healthy roses please feel free to share them. Have a great weekend and happy Pink Saturday!

And if you have time... stop by and visit Bella of Bella's Rose Cottage. She has THE most beautiful pink posting always and her photos are so fun to look at. Today she's showing a really cute...pink house!
