Standard Rose (White)
Bush Rose (Pink & Yellow)
It's so good to be able to get out into the garden and plant things, even in the middle of winter!
SJ and I busied ourselves over the long weekend with planting some bareroot roses and fruit trees.
It is our first attempt at growing these, so we have started small: Just two rose bushes to accompany the standard rose we moved from the front yard to the back, along with a peacherine and apricot tree, both of which do not require a pollinator. If we have success (meaning, if they don't die) we will plant more next winter.
Now I really cannot wait for spring, when the garden will burst with colour, and I can really get my hands dirty just sowing, planting, and growing...
