Martha M. Bosma shows off her breathtaking rose garden.

"Hi - you posted pictures of a garden that we made at my mom's house in October of 2013.  I thought I would update you on this garden, mainly the fantastic roses this year!  Whether it's the torrential rain we had in the winter or the unusually warm spring, the roses are fabulous this year!"

Here is the arbor from the same long view as last time, and one view from the street.

And here is a street view of the arbor.

Here is a view of a pair of chairs right behind the arbor where mom likes to sit.  It is the only grass left at either house!  The rose growing on the porch is Westerland, with fabulous colors.

A closeup of Brother Cadfael, a rose growing on her house.  The pink rose in the other photos is climbing Eden, a truly wonderful rose.
