Forgive me if you have dial up, I feel your pain.
Roses to me, in particular, the antiques are as cottage as you get, with the soft colors, their large fountain shape bushes, that float and flitter in the wind, and that classic rose scent.
Duchesse De Montebello (Peter Beales describes scent as a quality over quanity item.. let me tell you, that description captures the Duchesse and her divine scent...)
Comte De Chambord
Cardinal De Richelieu (what a color)
John Davis cascading into some bushes
Rose De Rescht
Reine des violettes, the only time i ever get these to be purple is to cut them very early in the morning near bud stage and bring them in..
Lilac Pink and subtle striping of Vicks Caprice
Rosa Centifolia, Peter Beales describes the lack of foilage on this.. hes right on, but what a pretty medium pink , with always that classic scent.
My Unknown Gallica again , last year bloomed for about 6 weeks, this year closer to 4 probably.. it bloomed like all at once.. but was a sight to behold
Quadra on the Trellis
Fruhlingsduft is getting there.. hopefully next year will have a splendid picture of the bush
Siberian Iris, Grown from seed, specieas version
Unknown White Iris
Unknown peach iris
