Elizabeth-Park-Rose-Garden-via-HedgerowRose.comThe more I learn about roses the more I realize I don’t know doodly-squat.

That’s what I’m taking with me as we enter into 2014. You’d think with that sobering dose of reality I’d be discouraged but it’s quite the opposite because over the past few years I’ve discovered how much I enjoy photographing and writing about roses almost as much as I do growing them! I have excitement and anticipation for spring and plans to “get out there” more to visit gardens outside of our own. Like this tour of Elizabeth Park, it’s such an enjoyable learning experience–a rose-filled classroom, if you will! So while I don’t like making New Year’s resolutions, I guess you could say this is my garden-y goal for the year.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing these “B-side” photographs of our visit to Elizabeth Park last June. (To view the original post please see this link.) What do you hope to accomplish with your garden this year?

  1. Oh, my, Laurie! Your two posts on this garden just about brought me to my knees. What an incredible place. I shall put it on my list of must-see gardens, maybe even this year.

    Thanks so much for your visit. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

    1. Oh my goodness thank you Georgianna! When I saw your comment I almost fell out of my chair–I’m such an admirer of your work. 🙂 You, too, have a wonderful new year!

  2. Gorgeous photos (even if they are B side)! I cannot stay away from a rose garden, either, and as soon as I find out about one, I want to visit it. I’m looking forward to doing some exploring in my new “neighborhood” come spring.

    There’s not a single rose bush of any kind around our new house, and the back garden is pretty boring (almost entirely grass and one small patio), so I have a lot of work ahead of me!

    1. That does sound like A LOT of work–we had a similar situation going on here when we moved in. Apart from ‘Dr Huey’ (the fate of many a neglected garden) there weren’t any roses to speak of. You’ll have so much fun planning and planting, though. I am looking forward to watching your progress via your blog and IG this spring!
