It rained early this morning. That was a good excuse for no planting today. It wasn't a very good excuse for no weeding, but I used it anyway. I really just needed a day off. I did go out to enjoy everything and take pictures though. The roses are peaking here in the NC foothills (at least they are at my house).
Even with weeds and planting to do, it's a paradise out there right now. Breathtakingly beautiful.
The ever elusive 'Marechal Niel' grows on arch at other end of this garden. It was huge, but this year only two or three canes are alive. So sad.
Look over to the right, a waterlily blooming in the pond.
Look up to see Pond Hill Garden. Don't notice all the empty spaces. Lots of roses and plants coming to fill those in! Also, try not to notice the unfinished waterfall to the left. Rock coming to finish it!
Back up the stairs. To the right is Flower Girl Hill. More roses live here. Also space for my little vegetable garden. I've only planted a few things so far. Don't notice the grass I've yet to dig up.
At the top, look down to see the flower girl.
Look down Pond Hill to see...
