Use your imagination

"Everything you can imagine is real"
-Pablo Picasso


Boy with a Pipe
From Picasso's rose period (1904-1906)



This is going to be a rose garden...at this stage you'll have to use your imagination 


This may help...click to enlarge

I've hauled countless truck loads of dirt, manure and soil conditioner.  The six tea olives are now in the ground, the beds are prepared and I'm searching for my arbor.

I imagined it...and it's almost real!


All roses can be found via English breeder David Austin

"After fifty years of intensive breeding, David Austin's English Roses combine the forms and fragrances of old roses with the repeat-flowering of modern roses.  They are easy to grow, healthy and reliable."

From his website
