I've had my husband hide the camera so I won't be tempted to do more of this for quite some time. Some people take drugs, I take pictures ......

Taking pictures is a healthy addiction, I think! Really lovely photos, Ingrid. Your birdbath is a charming touch. The terra cotta blends with the natural soil and enhances the sense of place. I'm sure that visiting members of the local wildlife appreciate a drink in the heat of the summer, too. Please tell the President that many bald men are very attractive, especially when they arrive with gorgeous bouquets of sumptuous pink blooms! I'm glad you didn't relinquish your camera before this leg of the tour. Much appreciated! Carol

Ingrid:

Tell your husband to give the camera back Your garden has a rugged beauty that begs to be shared. Pretty color scheme that would remain just as lovely if you wanted to add back in Carding Mill, as long as you dappled its color here and there rather than adding it in just one place. Love your roses, especially SdlM, and I'm so excited about adding it to the Humpty Dumpty House gardens!

Beautiful (and warm looking!). I hope to see the beginnings of blooms within a couple of weeks. Though, winter is really not wanting to leave. :/

Don't put the camera away now! Wait until the hot winds blow and Spring is past. How lovely it is.

They are really pretty, beautiful roses and the other flowers are lovely, such a good accent. Of course I love your SdLM and the Reine des Violettes and Mrs. B.R. Cant are out of this world. They are all gorgeous. I don't think anyone would tire of seeing your roses, that's why we are on here. Please let us enjoy them as long as possible!

What to do when you're all being so complimentary and nice? Well, it's actually turned rather cool (50 degrees in the evening) and the spring flush might be delayed for a few weeks if it keeps on like this. This works well since you'll all have a nice two-week rest at least and hopefully many of the buds will have become flowers. To be continued......

Hang on to the camera. You'll be glad you took all these pictures when the summer heat sets in.

Oh please DO continue! What do you think sustains rose lovers like me who still have over 2 ft. of snow on the ground? (And what is it doing this morning? Yes, 2" of predicted snow is making its way down from the sky.)
Ingrid, your garden is beautiful and I am so enjoying the photos of the lovely blooms. Don't ever think you've posted too many!!

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share these. So lovely! They give the rest of us inspiration and hope that spring might really be right around the corner. I hope that you will never feel that you're taking and sharing too many pictures of your garden. Can there really be such a thing as too many pictures of pretty roses on the antique rose forum?
