{New Rose Arbor on High Heels}

Sure, our entire property is on a slope so there hardly is an even spot. This resulted also in placing our New Rose Arbor on High Heels!
Eden Vienna 7.5-ft. Vinyl Arch Arbor
Quite expensive...
But we found ours for a lot less: Hayneedle Eden Vienna 7.5-ft. Vinyl Arch Arbor and even with free shipping.
Searching on line can often yield surprising bargains!
Our pond has an overflow into the creek and Pieter still had some of those 6" Pvc pipes so his idea was for filling them with concrete and letting the Rose Arbor's feet stand (with of course the vinly 2 x 4s inside the legs) partly in the concrete.
It was still during the very wet season. This was April 13, when I took these photos.
Bird & bat house visible to the left.
This little 4-wheel Utility Cart is handy for towing things around.
On May 19, our two new climbing roses got planted.
I'd seen on María Cecilia's blog post from Casa Dulce Hogar in Chile, her incredible pink Eden Rose: Pierre de Ronsard roses (and clouds) and wanted to know if there also was a white variety.
Yes, I did find them at Roses Unlimited in Laurens, South Carolina, where Pat Henry & Bill Patterson offer a very extensive collection of all sorts of roses.
We also bought other roses from them, Jardins de Bagatelle a very fragrant hybrid tea rose in a cream color.
Excellent plant material and perfectly boxed up with their pots secured in a genial way!
Very healthy roses! Far better than the usual bare root shipment.
Our happy Eden white or Pierre de Ronsard roses!
Now we just have to wait for the first roses to show up and grow along this beautiful Rose Arbor.
Here you also get to see a detail from the redone wood trail which got extended a little for this Arbor.
That's how it looks from the other side...
Again a bird house visible on that holly tree.
Spicy-girl is making sure that the new roses are protected!
Do you have a Rose Arbor?

  3. Ciao Mariette, il vostro giardino è bellissimo. Anche io ho una rosa Pierre de Ronsard e proprio adesso è ridondante di fiori, mi era stata regalata qualche anno fa per il mio compleanno: il 19 maggio! Come dire? Le rose arrivano sempre in quella data... e non solo da me!
    Un abbraccio e buon giardinaggio,
    V.

      Ciò che un bel regalo per il tuo compleanno e felice di leggere che fiorisce in abbondanza il tuo compleanno! Io amo le rose così tanto... soprattutto quelli profumati.
      Abbracci e buon fine settimana,
      Mariette

  4. Hello Mariette, Your new arbor looks elegant, and just wait until it is covered with climbing roses! You know I don't garden, but I have repeatedly heard that mildly sloping sites are good for air as well as water drainage, resulting in a healthy garden. Pieter has come up with a great solution for installing the arbor.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Thank you so much and believe me, I hardly can wait to see them climb up and covering it with lovely rose blossoms.
      Our sloping site is okay but the soil is in general very poor. We try to do our best by adding lots of potting soil. This arbor got installed in a very genial way indeed.
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

  7. Wat een pracht van een rozenboog....en wat slim om die zo vast te zetten...
    Ik ben ook benieuwd hoe de rozen het gaan doen....het gaat vast mooi worden, ziet er vanuit verschillende ' hoeken' zo de foto's genomen zijn al heel mooi uit, laat staan als er nog een roos tegenaan groeid...en ja...wij hebben ook rozenbogen....3 zelfs, maar niet zulke mooie als bij jullie...gewoon simpele ijzeren.

    1. Beste Marian,
      Ja, een pronkstuk is het zéker en ik was er ook helemaal weg van! Romantisch en toch enigszins strak We kunnen amper wachten om de mooie Eden roos in bloei te zien al klimmende tegen haar mooie boog.
      Simpele ijzeren zullen ook best mooi zijn omdat ze toch aangekleed worden door de mooie klimrozen. Geniet ook van jullie tuin in deze mooiste tijd van het jaar!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  8. Liebe Mariette,
    ich muss mich immer wieder darüber wundern, wie praktisch dein Pieter veranlagt ist.
    Ich habe von dieser Rose noch nichts gehört und bin gespannt, wann du die erste Blüte
    hier zeigen kannst.
    Einen sonnigen Dienstag wünscht dir
    Irmi

  10. Dearest Mariette,
    What a perfect solution for uneven ground. Your arbor looks so pretty; I'm sure you are waiting for flowers. I don't usually order live plants by mail, but yours look so healthy I may rethink my policy!
    We are finally getting some rain here, after one-third of an inch in May.
    I hope you get some soon...........*s*

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      Thank you and yes, it was a genial solution and great repurposing of existing material.
      Oh, when roses arrive like this, it makes all the difference for a healthy start. Bare root roses are so tricky to get going.
      We too got very little rain in May, anxious to see what June will bring.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  12. Rose arbor on high heels! What a great idea! And looks like it worked perfectly. I can't wait to see the arbor covered with beautiful roses. It's gonna be so lovely.
    And good job, Spicy-girl, for protecting the roses :-) With you on guard, I'm sure roses will grow beautifully!

      This combination is genial indeed and over the years, those high heels will get covered by these climbing roses as well. For sure I will share its beauty when it blooms.
      Spicy-girls for sure will watch out; this is her territory and she loves to play in the mondo grass; catching imaginary monsters by jumping on them!

  17. The arbor is already lovely on its own but will be even prettier when the roses grow and take over. I thought of doing the same thing with concrete in pots and placing wooden poles in them so that we could make a terraced canopy over our bedroom balcony. The sun beats down on that side in the afternoon and having some protection for the plants out there would be nice . We put a tarp over the other balcony but have no way to erect one off our bedroom. Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tammy P.S. Spicy Cat looks quite content :)

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thank you and indeed it is pretty on its own and sure does not need total coverage!
      That might work out for adding some much needed shade for your bedroom balcony. We had shade from our Confederate Jasmin that grew on two sides of our French bedroom doors. But we had to remove it for the balcony renovation and now with the indoor shutters there is no need for it anymore.
      Spicy is a very content and happy girl and always near the home!
