Our new (totally fake, as I’m sure you’ve surmised) half-barrel for our rose, Dusty, fresh from Lowe’s Depot (as my wife refers to our DIY stores). Now our rose just needs to start putting energy into buds, instead of endless leaves and branches.
Oh, and we got our pumps put back in finally (it’s been a couple weeks since the last set of flurries) and our waterfalls are back. The rose is just off the top right of the photo, on the terrace.
Thanks for your advice!
