My World: I Promised Her a Rose Garden

Our new flower bed, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 23, 2010.

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

Well, I didn’t promise a rose garden as much as a new flower bed.  This is the flower bed we built last year to keep me from having to mow the steep banks of the ditch in front of our house.  We built the wall and filled in behind it to make a new flower bed.

The irises in the bed have already bloomed, although they should all bloom again in the autumn.  The roses (7) are now blooming and the lilies have started to open.  In a couple of weeks we should have daylilies blooming there as well.

All in all, it’s not bad outcome for something to help solve a mowing problem.

    A lot of back breaking work went into the making of that flower bed! It turned out great. You did have to fix it when you had all that water, didn’t you?? Flowers are filling it in very nicely!

    Also loved you walking on the deserted beach – so relaxing!

    Praying here that Betsy’s knee problem will be able to be fixed soon and she’ll be back on her feet in no time!

    I remember last summer when you were building that garden! It certainly looks like it was planned for the beauty of it, not to fix a problem!! Thanks for the follow-up!
