Well we survive Earl, fairly unscathed here in Nova Scotia. And it is a beautiful sunny, not too hot, not too cold sort of a day here today.So I thought I would share some of the latest arrangements from my garden with all of you in the hopes they will bring some sunshine your way.

RE: Some arrangements

Carrie, these are exquisite! I think you could put together some gorgeous bridal bouquets. How wonderful that you have so many beautiful roses blooming in September. I'm having a hard time trying to keep everything from frying in the heat.

Thanks for these lovely pictures.

RE: Some arrangements

Carrie, I don't think I've ever seen anything lovelier - really. Would you mind sharing the information regarding which roses you grow and what is your secret to having all of those gorgeous blooms at this time of year? I live in Central New York and, other than a blanc de Coubert rugosa, I have absolutely no roses blooming.

Thank you everyone!!!

Patreesh, This has been a good year for my rose, lots of sunshine. Although I am fairly new to gardening, this is only my fourth season. I just jumped in with both feet. So to be honest, I don't have a whole lot to compare to. But I can tell you what I do. I feed once per month from May to July. I give all my egg shells, coffee grounds and banana peels to my gardens year round. And of course I water them from beneath regularly. And of course many bloom in flushes so it's a bit coincidental that so many are in bloom right now.

I have;
Heritage, Austin Rose
Abraham Darby, Austin Rose
Lillian Austin, Austin Rose
Graham Thomas,Austin Rose

Pascali, Hybrid Tea
Elle, Hybrid Tea
Blue Girl, Hybrid Tea
Miss All American Beauty, Hybrid Tea

Sexy Rexy, Floribunda Rose
Margret Meril, Floribunda Rose

Belinda's Dream, Shrub Rose
Morden Blush, Shrub Rose
Alba Meidiland, Modern Shrub Rose

The Fairy, Polyantha Rose
New Dawn, Climbing Rose

I hope this helps.

Carrie

Just beautiful! Such soft, romantic colors. I also like the dark red hollyhocks(?).The 8th bouquet with the hollyhocks and lily is the loveliest shape.

Just beautiful! That nigella looks interesting in the last bouquet. I've never tried growing it, but it probably wouldn't like my heat here.

I'm very envious, I can't grow those roses here in my zone 3 garden.

Happy gardening.

Carrie,
They are amazingly beautiful. If you aren't paid to do this, you should be. The bouquets are perfect and the topiary is so cool.
Thank you,
Kitty
