Sideyard Rose bed with Spring Bulbs

newyorkrita(z6b/7a LI NY)May 2, 2011

The rose bed that runs along the south side of my house. Roses are leafed out and starting to grow. Tulips and Wood Hyacinths are blooming. Daffodils are done. I have lilies in there also for summer color. I love roses and lilies and especially love them together.

It is just gorgeous there Rita! I love your wood hyacinths! Everything is just coming along so fast for you and I think there is a big growth difference in so much since last years photos. It's really filling in everywhere! Lovely.

As soon as the roses get fully leafed out it makes a big difference. Before that the bed looks very stark, after quite lusch. Amazing what some folliage can do. I love spring.

Very, very nice. I bet it's a joy to walk through every day to see what is blooming.

Things seem really lush to have Tulips blooming too. If I remember correctly, the last time I planted tulips here they arrived colorfully beautiful well ahead of all the rest, standing lonely guard over the warmer weather coming!
