The Rose Garden in Summer, Part I: A Walk Down the Brick Path of a 15' x 30' Rose Garden in a Sloped Suburban Backyard

Can a home gardener have a rose garden? If you have ever asked yourself that question, my answer is an unequivocal yes. Inspired by the Cranford Rose Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, I knew that I could fit a lot of roses into a small space, which I have endeavored to do in this 15' x 30' strip of a sloped suburban backyard. In this post (Part I), I'll take you on a short little walk up and down the brick path. In the next couple of days, I'll endeavor to sort through the close-ups of the individual roses and try to post at least some of them.

It is amazing how much plant material can go in an area and change the feel of that space. I love the brick walkway too.
