Lovely capture of Sheila's Perfume. If only New Dawn would retain some color here. Phooey.

L D Braithwaite looks splendid with Don Juan in bouquet.

Thanks guys :-)

No Braithwaite in the bouquet....most of the reds are The Dark Lady with a few Don Juans. New Dawn is kinda the same here. I'm experimenting with it on a wall with Don Juan and America. This is only year two so jury's still out.

I cut em in a bucket and then stuff em in a vase.....quite scientific if I do say so myself ;-) Usually it's more about support on the bottom tier and then about arranging with color in mind. Every one is extremely odiferous for sure though.

GASP!!!
Your Abes surpass all the other Abe pictures you've posted. Superb!!!!

Is that Paradise in the one vase?

I've never seen honeysuckle before. How pretty!!! Now I'll know what honeysuckle smells like if my New Zealand ever gets scent.

Gorgeous Boxo!!

Abe blooms amaze me Carol. I don't spray because I'm not convinced of the toll on bees but whatever warts the foliage may or may not have is inconsequential in comparison......IMOwnVHO. Others may beg to differ but...................

I'm not sure on that rose, when I need a few to stuff a bouquet I steal that one from my neighbor because his girls all have allergies :-)

They're all gorgeous, of course, but that bouquet is breathtaking!
