Your garden is beautiful-wow, you walk through the pathway and your nose is smothered in roses.
I have a couple of Austins in pots, but they are newly planted. Eventually, the golden celebration will have to go in the ground.
I love the way you have arranged your potted roses, though, with the caladiums and terra cotta pots.
Thanks for the garden walk,
Rooty

Wow, that is truly spectacular! What's the rose behind Peace---is it also the mammoth on the left side of the "Entry" photo? Very impressive.

RE: What's Blooming Now

Oh, wow, oh, wow! Harold the rose garden is looking absolutely gorgeous and the colors are Just Bursting Everywhere! So beautiful!!! I can especially enjoy and love the full front rose bed and the absolutely gorgeous garden shot(with Peace in the foreground).

What a fabulous treat to see your roses again! Give our hugs and love to Adele too. I wrote to Jim right away, as soon as I had got word of Adele from you and we are all so happy at how well she is doing! Poor Sue still has some of that injury that won't be able to be treated, but I am still keeping good thoughts that her body can somehow heal on its own.

RE: What's Blooming Now

Yes, Harold! They are such a wonderful treat, and those lucky, lucky visitors--not only do they get to see a visual rainbow of so many beautiful colors, they also get to smell all the Pope John Paul's of yours and Fragrant Cloud and Folklore and the great smelling roses of your garden! Wow and fantastic!

Harold, Adele's kitchen must also be smelling pretty wonderful too, hehe! I'm such a foody fiend, lol! I still remember your yummy basil too! and I drool whenever I think about Adele's lemon pie. I started growing bunches of herbs myself! About 6 varieties of thyme, and 2 kinds of sage, oregano, and agastache, and I've also got some previous lavender that is also growing like gangstas, lol!

Great shots. Love your 'Valencia'. Gotta try that one. Is it disease-resistant? Or a prima donna? -Paul


 o
RE: What's Blooming Now

Dear Serena I'm glad to here that you are into growing herbs they are so easy to grow and are soo great when they are fresh.

Mr Paul, Valencia is listed as very disease resistant I spray all my roses so I can't say for sure. It is on fortuniana rootstock and was planted last Fall and it is already four foot tall will post more pictures of it later. Thanks

RE: What's Blooming Now

Imperatrice looks stunning. And Ain't She Sweet looks a lovely shade of rose pink-red. Thanks for the eye candy.
