WOW! That is beautiful! How many rose bushes are we looking at? What kind are they? Do they smell? Thanks so much for sharing these with us!

Thanks Sam.

Those are two climbing pinkie roses. One on each side of the arbor. The bottom two picks are looking at the arbor from one end.

The do have fragrance, but not a heavy fragrance like some roses.

WOW!!! I love your pictures. I have always wanted to do something like that in my yard; got as far as planting 2 climbers against my unsightly garage but did not have the foresight to add an arbor and a bench which, judging from yours, would have been gorgeous!!! Oh well, maybe next year.

Thanks so much for sharing. I am using the second picture as my screen saver so I can enjoy it on there even if I can't enjoy it in person.

Happy Gardening!

Hey thanks for the kind words guys.

I just put up a collection of West Texas sunrise/sunset photos on Webshots if anyone wants to see some more of my pics.

That is just breathtaking. Thanks for sharing. How long did it take the climbers to get that large. Mine are going on three years and just now reaching the top of an 8 ft. arbor. I am not enjoying mine as much as your pics!

Sure Jodi, c'mon down... of course, we won't mention the dust storm we had out here in West Texas until you get here! :)

And, MB, mine took about three years to get going. But, gardening is SO "local"

Great looking Pinkie, I love that rose. And your arbor is so good looking.

I have to say that I used to dream of that type of setting in my backyard when I was in high school. I still dab here and there in gardening and still dream of having a bench with an arbor just like yours!! Awesome!! Nice to know someone is living my dream ha ha ha!!
