How about:
Everything in the garden is coming up in roses
Everything in the garden is going great guns

Do they stand in your book? Will they work as synonymous for "rosy"?

'Everything is coming up roses' and 'everything is going great guns' both indicate that things are going really well, but neither of them necessarily have anything to do with the garden.
