Roses and more flowers!

We bought these rose bushes from Walmart for $6. We didn't know how well these kinds of roses would grow, but for $6, we figured, what the heck, we'll try it. I'm happy to report, that the roses already have blooms! It's been 2 months since we planted the "stick" bare roots. They literally were sticks with roots when we brought them home. Now, the are lush with greens and flowers. Worth ever penny! Look how pretty!

Also, when we built the picket fence around the garden, we weren't sure if we should trim down the tall fence posts. Then a friend of ours gave us this great idea to put hanging baskets on the posts! What a great idea! We did a patriotic theme of red, white and blue flowers!
