therese bugnet--2nd bloom (not really old enough to flush yet) purchased on multiflora this spring.


someone could get JUNGLE ROT in here! LOL.

pretty little shot of Verdun, nepeta, Marie Pavic and friends.

Mermaid--once the petals fall the anthers remain like little golden spiky suns. This rose just glows.

Sweet Victoria--new intro from Palatine this year. Very healthy so far.

baby Molineaux--amazing shading. like stained glass.

delphinium--at the base of Parade climber. after all the talk here I decided to try again. Ingrid, if you are out there looks like porcelain. Maybe not Chinese but early Wedgwood. Gorgeous matte color with a rose like Parade.

Regensberg--new, cute, slow to repeat

Cymbaline--a ghostly grey pink that is so gorgeous and unique. Came as band this spring.

Talisman bloom from band (others got pinched). She defoliated and is struggling

Prairie Sunrise--if Georgia O'Keefe painted roses they would look like this.

Lemon Spice--new bush on fort.

Same garden early March

Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed.

WOW,Susan....your garden is lovely. I especially liked the May pic and the smorgasbord picture! It is amazing what happens...the growth. All of a sudden you have this lush green beautiful garden. You have put a lot of work in to this garden and it is lovely. Lesley

Susan, the "before" shot makes the "after" shots look really impressive. You have some really beautiful roses and I very much like the cottage garden look. Your garden is growing beautifully.

Thanks you all! I had a visitor the other day and I said to him, "Well, is it too much of a jungle?". He winked and said, "It's a jungle OUT THERE. In here, it's a sanctuary,".
I think that was a very nice compliment and exactly how I feel about my garden. I've worked so hard.
I hope my jr. gardner takes good care while I'm gone!
But I REFUSE to worry about that.

I love your garden, Susan. Your roses have great colors and nice ruffles... You have some very unique roses that no one else have. Thanks for those pics.
