My Potted Rose Garden

4.26 Rose Garden 1

Sometimes I miss my old garden.

A lot.

A lot of sweat and money went into creating it. I had a dry riverbed that meandered throughout. Nice paths to walk along each section. An edibles and herb garden on the side. A trellis of climing roses. And even though the soil was hard-packed clay, my roses seemed to like it.

In pots now? Not so much.

Still, they're holding on.

Occasionally giving me a few blooms.

Which I value all the more since they're more rare.

Other garden updates.

1 year ago today, I asked if readers could identify my mystery rose.
2 years ago today, lil' sis made insalata caprese (Italian Capri tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad), I made Citrus Roast Chicken and Roasted Golden Beets.


  1. I know just what you mean. But enjoying a single beautiful rose from the unfurling of the sepals to the last petal to drop off is precious, too. Maybe one day you'll get to build your dream garden again.

  2. Nikki,
    I think it's because we put so much work into our gardens, it's hard to leave that behind.
