Cottage Rose Garden
A small garden space has been transformed into a romantic rose garden with cottage style perennials. A pocket handkerchief lawn features a vintage wrought iron garden seat, flanked by wrought iron obelisks which feature climbing roses and old fashioned sweet peas. Stepping stones lead their way into each border so the roses and perennials can be enjoyed close up. Box hedging keep the edges neat and the plants contained. Across a small pebble path, a third border provides more space for larger perennials and a tree hung with bird feeders invites wild birds into the garden. Although the focus for summer is on roses, dahlias are a feature of late summer with a multitude of flowering bulbs in the spring. In winter the garden holds its form through the hedging and topiary plants, including dwarf standard stone fruit trees and pittosporum balls.
