Hellow fellow rose lovers. I thought I'd share what's currently blooming in my garden. I apologize ahead of time that there will be some pictures NOT rose related.

Simply beautiful roses and a gorgeous peony (can't grow them but love them). Oscar and Nikolai of course are the icing on the cake. What would we ever do without our fur (and feather) children?

I agree with everyone - Zeffy with Iceberg - what a stunner!! And Teasing Georgia - yikes what a beauty!! Wow!! And it grows THAT big in zone 6!!!!! Talk about a lot of roses!! I also really like your Heirloom! Oh heck -they're all fantastic!!

Have you had your parrot since it was very young? Of course, he's still young - only 7 months old! Gorgeous bird!!

Thank you so much for the look!!!!!!!!

Wow! Great looking roses Wendy!

Great Wendy. That gigantic Teasing Georgia is teasing me. You are way ahead of me. My Heirloom and Melody Parfumee' aren't blooming yet.

RE: What's blooming in my neck of the woods (picture extensive)

I love your post. The roses are all fantastic. I want to rip out my Graham Thomas and put in a Teasing Georgia. That is certainly impressive.

RE: What's blooming in my neck of the woods (picture extensive)

I like all the roses because they are like pieces of art presented to us by nature, their photos are like the finest examples of pictures in many different styles: impressionism, expressionism, realism. Even their names are like music.

is the parrot friendly?? I scared of birds...

RE: What's blooming in my neck of the woods (picture extensive)

Thank you all so very much. :) This truly is my favorite time of the year. Ok, deadheading Teasing Georgia WILL be a chore, but it's be well worth it because she comes back super fast every time.

Nikolai (the parrot) is like a puppy. I met him when he was 8 weeks old and not quite feathered yet. I visited him at the breeder 2-3 times a week, and he's been home with me for about 2 months now. He snuggles non stop, lays in my arm, cuddles under my chin, and is starting talk. He's lots of work, but worth every minute ;)

Weather permitting I'll take some pictures of my roses in the front today.

Again, thank you all very much. :)

Lovely roses Wendy, I really like Teasing Georgia. Do you get alot of BS on her? I love your bird, post more pictures of him if you can, I think he is beautiful!

RE: What's blooming in my neck of the woods (picture extensive)

Wendy, your roses look wonderful. I was considering Teasing Georgia but after seeing the size of yours, I don't think so. Pat is such a beautiful rose. You must spray, what do you use? Also, the ones in pots are blooming their heads off. I like your bird too! He's cute.

Thank you so much, ramblinrose & Carla. :) Teasing Georgia is EXTREMELY healthy for me. Some of the other Austins get blackspot quite bady if I let up with my spraying, but TG is a true trooper. I use Bayer Disease Control for Roses & Flowers once a week.

More pictures of Niko? Sure.... ;) I can never get enough of him.

Oh he is so AMAZING, his coloring and markings on his face are so vivid and striking, he is truly a beautiful bird. I can see why you treasure him.
Thanks for sharing more pics of him.

Zepherine Drouhin inter-twined with Cl Iceberg and the enormous Teasing Georgia is absolutly beautiful. They sure seem happy. Jean Ar that movie is called "Homeward Bound-The Incredible Journey" my kids loved that movie when it came out in 1993 they wore that movie out from watching it so much.
Beautiful roses!

Beautiful bird and roses, JerseyWendy. I totally missed out on this post and am playing belated catch-up! I especially love the Climbing Iceberg and Zephirine Drouhin entwined and your Gruss an Aachen. Dogs are fantastic aren't they! Eluane is super gentle around plants...

RE: What's blooming in my neck of the woods (picture extensive)

All are absolutely lovely. I really wish my ZD produced as well as yours. I've committed to removing it this year if it doesn't produce more.

Thanks for posting your wonderful pictures. All are absolutely delightful.

Feel free to also post more photos of Oscar too for those of us who love pooches as much as birds and roses. :)
