Oh, I love it when a ton of manual labor turns into a labor of love! I returned to buy 2 of the arches Steven and I had seen and we decided to get two trailing white roses as well. I was so excited to get to work making the adjustments to our established plants and planters to make room for the arches.
The rain let up a few days earlier, the ground had a chance to firm up, and the sun was out. Perfect timing to dig in. Here is the results of my labor…..
Give these roses some time and they will fill in the wire. Our hope is to take a few longer arms of the roses and fill in the gap between the arches eventually. We will see how it goes, but I am so in love with the new dimension we added! The Blarney Castle tunnel inspired me and eventually the eye will be drawn to the gorgeous rose tunnel and not the drab harsh looking eucalyptus stumps!
Oops, now to find a new home for all those snowdrops I dug up…. Cyn
