is keeping me adrift these days (and away from the computer.)
The garden has never had more.
'Crown Princess Margareta' buds
This gardener couldn't be happier.
The scent wafts over, around and thru ~ permeating the air.
'Winchester Cathedral' buds
Single blooms are clipped & the garden is meandered with them stuck to the nose.
'Winchester Cathedral' Tree Rose
There's no better way to breathe....
'Crown Princess Margareta'
Miniature Rose 'Cupcake'
'Abraham Darby' bud
The photos above seem to reveal what the preferred rose color is ~ surprised even me ~ I thought it would be pink but it definitely seems to be hues of yellow????
There IS pink tho ~
Pink roses threaded thru the rusted iron obelisk.
Clematis 'Hagley hybrid' rambling among the same pink roses.
'Hagley Hybrid' is easy to miss, if you aren't looking. It made much more of a statement when it climbed the antique birdfeeder but unfortunately, raccoons knocked that over one too many times this past winter and broke it. :-(
I've heard much of the country is sweltering in heat this holiday weekend, not us. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's cold but it's cool(er), blustery and we've definitely had more perfect outdoor/grilling weather. That's okay, along with enjoying the roses, there's graduation & accompanying parties to keep us busy. Whatever is happening in your area, enjoy the Memorial Day weekend & thank you men & women of the Armed Services. We never forget you!
