Today we’re off to Houston to visit AcAcia’s beautiful garden.

Hi y’all! My name is AcAcia. I thank you all so much for joining me on my gardening journey. Gardening has truly become a passion that is good for my soul!

    I never would have thought of planting roses in a container. I will be doing that this year. It's also a great way to change the look of the garden and patio. Thanks for the it!

    I didn’t know roses could grow in a container! Yours look gorgeous! Maybe I could have a few roses on my patio out of reach of the deer. I’m so glad you shared this!!
