Time sure flies. I can’t believe that my last entry was in December when I was setting up my Christmas decor and unwrapping the holiday dishware. The yuletide decorations have long since been packed away and stored carefully until next year. And now, it seems that suddenly spring has arrived! The rain has finally stopped, the ground is no longer wet and soggy and my roses have burst into bloom with a display of dazzling colors that feast my eyes every morning as I sip my coffee on the balcony overlooking the garden.
I think I like seeing the many colored petals strewn on the ground almost as much as I like seeing the blooms on the rosebushes.
I put in a little stone pathway in the very center of the rose garden which is quite helpful, because the garden is on a steep slope that can become quite slippery when it rains. They’re actually faux stones. I made them out of concrete using a large mold that I bought at the home improvement store. I’m hoping that eventually the grass will grow in between each stone and give the pathway a more natural look.
Most of the fruit trees already have ripening fruit on them. Others are full of blossoms.
My favorite part of the garden however, is the rose garden. I’ve started another little rose garden down below on the left side of the slope with just cuttings from the larger plants. They’ve already rooted and they’re doing nicely. Hopefully next year they’ll bloom as much as their parents do in the garden directly above them.
