Lovely weather here- cool and clear, so the roses are hanging in there.

It is so lovely, it is a really dream garden for me! The effect of mixing so many beautiful flowers is gorgeous. And so many blooms on one plant is incredible, amazing!

I have to say, Renee, that this garden should be in a magazine so many, many people could enjoy it. It is just lovely. I can`t even imagine the amount of work involved in this garden, but I do know it is truly beautiful. Thanks for the pictures and more is always appreciated. Lesley

OMG so gorgeous! I love the form of the petals - my favorite! Aack, I want it so badly! Along with the garden. Every time I see a beautiful garden it is in California.

Until the summer heat hits, njmomma.
Thanks, everyone. I love that rose so much I might have to get one myself. It's quite large, too.
The dark pink rose is Yves Piaget, which she almost yanked last year because it was balling. You all talked her out of it, and this year it is doing beautifully. By next year it should be stunning. Thanks for all of your wonderful advice.

A stunningly beautiful rose in a simply wonderful garden. It looks "old rose" and the number of blooms is amazing. I have Yves Piaget (and so glad your Mom kept hers) and if I had room I'd have to seriously consider GdM. Please give your Mom my compliments; she's a superb gardener!

I have to commend your Mom for her choice of color! Perfect use of violets, pinks, magentas and whites all complimenting each other.
