The roses are blooming in Bushwhack Alley. I will either have to sacrifice these at some point or move them elsewhere. They were here when I bought the place and from them I learned a minor lesson: Don't plant roses in your walkway.
Do, however, plant petunias in a box.
And if you plant perennials, you have less planting to do next year. The only addition I made to this arrangement is a marigold plant, which is not even visible in this photo.
Nearby, however, I planted all kinds of vegetative goodness.
And now for the art piece. I call this "Still Life With Rose and Some Other Flower."
