This is the type of Rose I’ve just bought for the front of the house. I wanted a white climber and have heard it’s a good one, White New Dawn. Image source
This little puny thing is my rose. It flew over from Denmark in a plastic bag in a box and waited for me at the post office on Friday.
As you can see I need some sort of a barrier between me and the neighbors after I ripped out all the prickly bushes that once stood where the concrete steps are now. Don’t get me wrong, my neighbors are really, really nice, but we need a little something in between us.
This or something similar is what I have in mind and the plan is that the rose will climb up it. I’ll probably paint mine white though. Image source
The trellis won’t get done until next year though and that’s also when I plan to build a square planter and place it on the concrete there at the end. It it I will probably plant a Buxus on a stem. which will look nice against the white wall.
For the time being my little rose won’t need much support. She’s tiny. To disguise that ugly drainpipe behind her I planted an Ivy which I got from my new neighbor who had too many (Tack, Kerstin!). Love how it covers it so well already.
And wiiiie, it’s Friday! Have a great weekend!
