Our roses, they took a long ride to the peninsula!

We have been working on the deck at the peninsula house. Not working on the deck as in repairing or building the deck, no this working is all about comfort and beautiful surroundings. We did purchase new deck chairs and a chaise to go along with the odds and ends of out door furniture, to create a comfortable and attractive area, if I do say so myself.

And then we purchased these deck pots to house the roses. This past weekend the roses made the move to the peninsula and here is a sneak peak of what it is beginning to look like......

My dear husband has said not all of the bushes came through in this good condition, but some pruning and a couple of months and they will be like new. There are 5 standard bushes for the deck and a florabunda rose to tuck into the yard somewhere. 

I hope to get more florabunda roses to tuck here and there in the yard, then come fall, harvest the hips. 

Ahhh, sitting out on the deck early evening, enjoying the sunset, my dear husband the the wonderful warm smell of roses.........
