Roses in front of our house. June 12, 2009.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and Fishing Guy.  To see more of our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

My world often contains roses.  The last of our roses bloomed this week, so I thought I would post this picture of the front of our house, showing almost all of our roses (two in containers on the extreme right didn’t get into the picture.  We have 48 roses — 22 in the bed on the left of the driveway, 16 in containers, and 10 in the bed on the right.

Needless to say, these flowers are a big part of my world in the Spring and Summer.

    We sure have enjoyed your roses. Thank you so much. I do a lot of container planting. Some are perennials and some with annuals I repot every year. Roses in containers is a great idea. does anybody ever drive into the potsd in the driveway? MB

    With that many rose plants you can have your own rose garden tour! I bet it’s a magnificent show when they all bloom simultaneously. I bet you get a lot of cars stop to gawk 🙂

    Beautiful driveway. I love the roses and green grass. (Our smaller-than-a-putting-green area of grass is so awful I want to rid ourselves of all grass here.)
