Sweet Rocket (I think it's a type of phlox)
Queen of Sweden
Chicago Peace. It had some sort of weird striping going on.
Rock & Roll
Here's my waterspout planter with dianthus (pink) and lobelia (blue).
Thanks for looking!
Very lovely Carol, if I didn't know better I woulda thunk that the Queen and Honest Abe were betrothed ;-) Love that spigot planter !
Very nice. Love that ROCK 'N' ROLL and your water spout planter is really cute.
Boxo - Yes, in that picture there is a resemblance, but there really isn't. :)
Beth - Yes - but it isn't Rock 'N' Roll - it's Rock & Roll. There is a difference. And I love that rose too. It's in my top 5 favorite roses.
I just love that planter too. It' just darling.
Thanks you two!
Very nice Carol - Love your roses and your phlox and Shasta daisies, both of those are two of my favorite flowers.
Beautiful!! Love QOS! I have several of her. Love her! That pic of Chicago Peace is gorgeous! Beautiful plants and great photography skills!! Judy
Wonderful roses and non-roses!
Sarah Ann - We're kindred spirits - I think that Shasta daisies and phlox look fantastic and bloom for a long while. Something else I really like is Peach Faced Bellflower.
PrettyPetals - Yes - isn't QOS fantastic. She just lights up the yard. Thanks for the camera praise - but thank goodness for modern cameras - with my neurological problem I start to fall over every time I take a picture. It's quite funny. MANY of my photos look blurry. But I don't worry about that. Any really nice picture is most likely a fortuitous accident. LOL
Beautiful roses and I love your Shasta daisies too. I have a some in a garden and I have to thin them out every so often to keep them from taking over. Love the water planter too, it's too cute
Carol your roses and plants look fantasic!
boncrow66 - Thanks for the kind words. I just LOVE that planter. I'll have to thin out my Shastas - maybe next year.
Thanks Jim - I won a lot of rose ribbons with my roses - 16 ribbons with 6 firsts and the rest seconds. My first year at a rose show. :)
Really lovely pictures, Carol! QoS always gets me.
Jay - thanks! Yes QoS is a superlative rose. I always want to have it. :)
Carol, love it all and so interesting!
Kate. I really liked your faucet planter and looked for something similar on ebay. It really adds interest to your beautiful garden.
Thanks Jasmine - I love it too. When I found it - I had to have it. :)
Thanks KentuckyRose - Like all of us - I just love being out in the yard. :)
Really beautiful. Love that ROCK 'N' ROLL it was awesome.
Thanks vivekpatel - I'm a little disappointed with it this year - because it has no fragrance - whereas last year the fragrance was intense. Go figure. But it's still an awesome rose.
Its OK.It happen some time
Thanks vivekpatel - maybe next flush!
Congrats on your rose show wins! Impressive.
Love that bloom on Alec's Red. Your Sweet Rocket (Hesperis) is a wonderful color. Beautiful display.
Better Luck for next time....
They're all lovely and I adore your bird bath planter!
Iris_gal - yes Sweet Rocket is an amazing plant. It first bloomed in early spring and is STILL blooming. And yes -I agree, the coloring on Alec's Red is quite nice. Thanks for your kind words. :)
Thanks vivekpatel - here's hoping for fragrance.
Thanks Seil - The lobelia still looks fantastic in the planter. Lobelia is great.
