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!
Carol

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.

Thanks Brittie!!

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

Thanks Kate!
Carol :)

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

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. :)

Kate. I really liked your faucet planter and looked for something similar on ebay. It really adds interest to your beautiful garden.

RE: roses etc. 2

RE: roses etc. 2

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.

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.

Carol
