During most of the summer of 2018 (when I wasn’t blogging much) I was working hard to make a rose garden in one corner of our front yard that gets sun most of the day. It was hard work and a challenge to position all of them into one corner.
There are over twenty different types and colors of roses in the bed and it looks a little different from the picture above because all of the non-roses were also dug up and moved to different areas of the yard inside and out. Several of them survived the winter of 2017-18 due to the ice and creatures called wild rabbits! They chewed the bark off of every rose in the yard!!
I meant to put up a barrier fence in the new rose bed during our first frost but never seemed to get around to it. My procrastination proved to be maddening, the rabbits got to them before I did. Immediately Eddie and I started putting up the barrier fence around the rose garden.
We have chain-linked fence around the yard so we only had to stake the fence around the roses from the inside of the yard. I’m glad we found the damage before it was to far gone to save the roses. We will be having Brunswick Stew if I catch the creatures getting through this!
I think these are worth saving!!!
