When my husband was deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom his co-workers helped me build this rose garden. There are nine rose bushes, one for each month that he was deployed. Amid the rose bushes are Dutch Irises, Bearded Irises and Dianthus. We host backyard barbecues and watch movies projected on the back of our house, complete with popcorn and ice cream floats. Friends bring over their blankets or we put out a lot of plastic chairs. It's a fun and inexpensive evening for everyone.
