There was no need to apologize, I love my stone heart shaped rose garden on the coffee farm. Let me say, I am not offended in the least. I, particularly like the plans to fill it with the dark red rose Black Prince and also the large red rose Madame and throw in some pink ones as well. I was only teasing yesterday when I said it looked a bit like the sign for a Push or Brothel, of which there are many in these parts. Gardens should have humor and stories to tell.
Our farm has many rocks. Some were hurtled over here by the volcano and some came with the river. As the saying goes - When you have lemons; make lemonade. We have rocks and we are making them into raised beds and making a large rose garden.
The stone heart is the brainchild of our gardener. He has used one of the very big boulders that was hurtled over here by the volcano and found its resting place in my garden as the top of the heart. The rest of the raised bed is river rock cleared before we plant new coffee. It will hold about 40 roses and I think will end up being the centerpiece of the rose garden. Can't wait to show my friends.
