My new rose garden was a gift on my birthday in the spring of 2007. The plan was done on 3D Home Architect Design Suite and I think my landscaper did a pretty good job of bringing together my plans. 'I Never Promised You a Rose Garden' is divided into 5 sections; The Dawn Garden (pinks, mauves, purples), The Sunset Garden (yellows, oranges, russets), The Peace Garden (many varieties of the 'Peace' rose and some complementay roses) and Yesterday's Garden (mostly OGR's and dedicated to my Mother and Father-in-law), The fifth section is a center circle as you enter and is dedicated to my Mother and planted with the 'Mother's Rose'. There are red climbers ('Dublin Bay') on both sides of the gated entrance arbor. It is surrounded by some other white, red and combination red/white roses. The initial planting was 75 roses. More were added this season (Spr/Sum '08), but it has a ways to go.
