September 1st Blooms & a Bumble Bee

TNY78(7a-East TN)September 1, 2012

Took a walk around the garden this morning, and it looks like I'm mainly between flushes, but there's still a few with at least a few blooms. Even with the few number of blooms, the bumble bee's were having a great time playing in the petels :)



Purple Splash

Bubblebath..hardly grew at all for a couple of years, now its a real showstopper!

Pink Grootendorst

Souv de St. Anne's

Midnight Blue

Diane ARE rose, but I'm not overly fond of it. This bloom was still a bud last night, and not its already flopping over. It doesn't seem to like our heat/humidity. Maybe it will be better in Fall's cooler weather

Hansa...I have 3 of these along the side of my house and they do wonderful as a backdrop for some of my shorter roses.


Belinda's Dream

Bouquet Parfait

Now for a couple of bee pics:)

Mid-air on Carefree Spirit

Really digging in on Carefree Spirit (they LOVE this rose!)

Snuggling with Coral Drift

Lastly, although the picture is a bit blurry, my Beauty Berry bush that has been freed from it's prison behind Ballerina! Yes, I got out and cut my Ballerina down, and I don't regret it a bit :)

Apparently I took a trip to the future and got my dates mixed up :) These are actually August 31st blooms! I guess when I'm not at work I block dates from my head!

I love your Bubble bath. Very apt name.
I love watching the bees in roses, I think they are hilarious.
I think it's Hansa that blooms in my favorite garden/park.
It's very perfumed and blooms all season long.

Thanks Diane, Inga, and Krista :)

I bet it is Hansa that is the highly fragrent rose in your garden park. When I was uprooting Ballerina this past week, all I could smell was the 3 Hansa bushes planted next to it! Wonderful scent!
