Many of you know that Betsy and I grow roses. We have 57 different variety of roses growing in our yard, most of which can be seen in the photo above. This picture was taken from the road in font of our house.
Our ‘big’ rose bed, with the new wall flower bed in the background. Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 1, 2013.
The picture above was taken standing at the house looking toward the road. The rose bed in the foreground is our ‘big’ rose bed and contains 22 roses. This is our oldest rose bed. The rose bed in the background is along the road and contains 7 roses in addition tulips, iris, lilies and day lilies. We put in this flower bed after building the retaining wall.
Our ‘small’ rose bed, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 1, 2013.
The rose bed on the opposite side of the driveway from our ‘big’ rose bed is the ‘small’ rose bed. It contains 10 roses.

Finally, we have ten container roses on each side of the driveway.
Those of you who are mathematically inclined will note that the sum of the roses is 59, not 57. That’s because we have duplicates of two roses. I’m not sure how long that will continue.
