Thriving Climbing Roses and Creative Garden Chairs at On the Creek

Hey there, Besties! 🌟 The Roses Are Blooming here On the Creek!

Isn't it just thrilling when our little efforts start showing big, beautiful results? Last spring, my backyard didn't exactly resemble the lush gardens you'd see in those glossy magazines. This year, oh boy, it's a different story! Our climbing roses, those delicate darlings we planted last year, are bursting into bloom, and I just can't wait to share this joy with you!Climbing Roses in chairs | on the creek blog //

Surviving the Odds: Our Climbing Roses Thrive

Remember my spring yard walk post? I shared a bit of a sad update about some of our rose bushes that didn't make it. But life, as we know it in our grand Earth School, always has a way of balancing things out. So, here's the good news: our climbing roses survived and are thriving, painting our little creek-side haven with swashes of vibrant colors!

I planned to pamper them with rose plant food this year, but time got away from me (as it often does!). Miraculously, though, they seem to be doing just fine. It goes to show that sometimes nature just needs a little trust and space to work its magic!

A Garden Full of Surprises: Our New Floral Experiment

Now, get this: instead of letting these beauties climb the usual fences, we've decided to get creative. We're training our roses to climb over a couple of old chairs! Yes, chairs! It's a quirky little experiment, and although they're not climbing much yet, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for a garden spectacle.

It's all a bit of a waiting game at this stage—those of you who garden know exactly what I mean. Perennials like these climbing roses take their sweet time, but I'm all in for the long haul, dreaming of the day these chairs are fully draped in rose-filled glory!

Embracing the Unexpected in Gardening and Life

Starting out, I never pictured myself with a vast flower garden, but here I am, completely in love with every leaf and petal. Each day brings new growth, new challenges, and new surprises. Just like our crafting projects or a home renovation, gardening teaches us patience, creativity, and resilience. Every little bud, every bloom is a testament to what we can achieve with a bit of grit and a lot of love.

So, whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting to dip your toes into the soil, remember that every plant, project, and moment is a step in our beautiful, ongoing journey of growth and discovery. Keep planting, keep dreaming, and let's make our worlds—whether they're as big as a backyard or as small as a window sill—a little more beautiful every day.

Happy gardening, everyone! 🌹✨
