Before & After Garden
 
3 Attachment(s)
This poor rose was totally entangled in and between this old piece of driftwood.

I've had this driftwood since I was 5 years old (my dad brought it home from a cottage as I liked floating on it) and really don't want to part with it.

After pruning and cutting away, I placed a new wrought iron trellis behind. It's hard to tell but in the middle of the trellis is a hummingbird! :)

I took the driftwood and placed it behind some hostas. Gonna fix up that corner next. :thumbs up [SIZE="1"][COLOR="Red"]Oh BTW...you can see a couple of creepers here too! [/COLOR][/SIZE]

Wow, you really did a lot of work. Looks great :thumbs up

Love your creepers. :D

Every garden needs creepers :cloud9:.

Love both the driftwood and the trellis and your gardens too of course :).

Wow, that really made a difference! How did you manage to get the driftwood out without killing the rose? :o I excel at killing things while trying to disentangle them... :rolleyes: One of my natural 'talents'... :o

Fortunately, there was only one cane that was entangled in amongst the driftwood but unfortunately, it did have the most off shoots (furthest to the right). :(

It looks a little bare now but with it being all cleaned up and out, I'm hoping it will thrive next summer. :fingerscr

We'll need some pics next summer to see how it's doing. :D
