I planted these roses in my backyard over 7 years ago. I have not been able to enjoy them in 5 years since Mark has been living in the house that is on that side of the fence. I knew that I was going to get to keep my home when those roses came up over the fence for me , in all of their glory. They have not had any water, fertilizer, or TLC in all of those years and they persevered. I intend to cut a gate into that fence. I don't ever want to feel cut off from my own land again.
