It's been a strange spring, with more disease and fewer flowers than I expected, and weird weather, but it's always possible to find beauty in the garden.

All beautiful! Your roses are stunning, but I'm still in love with that huge brown boulder in your yard! All I've got is some ugly grey rocks sticking up on my property lol!

Ingrid, you have a spectacularly beautiful garden! I love your rock. I'd love to see a picture of all of it. It looks amazing and huge!

I love your garden, Ingrid. What a spectacular rock you have!

RE: Some Spring Pictures

Thank you all so much for your nice comments. Very few people actually see (or appreciate) my garden, so it's a great pleasure to share it here with other passionate gardeners.

I'll try to see if I have a picture that shows more of the rock. It's about 30 feet across and the whole structure, which tapers to a lower height and is less solid rock and more decomposed granite, is about 150 feet long.

Here's a somewhat better picture of our garden rock that I happened across when I was looking for something else. You can't see the long part that parallels the house, but this is the highest point of it anyway.

While outside an angry storm is brewing, I am enjoying a May tour of Ingrid's beautifully arranged garden. Oh, those pinks--I love them, too. That sister Elizabeth bloom is spectacular, and Betty Prior is looking just right against the pale color of the house. I can see why you love Potter & Moore, and I plan to check it out on HMF right after I finish this post. Thanks for the tour. Diane

WOW!! I see a lot of pink!! I love pink roses!!! Belinda's Dream is sensational. Lovely shaped bush with flowers that completely suit it.
Thanks!

Ingrid - I've seen several pictures of your lovely roses, but have hesitated to comment, because I have a difficult time coming up with the words. There is such a naturalness in the way it is all put together, Your roses so look like they belong, I love the look you have created.
