Happy New Year!!!
(click photos to enlarge)
I thought I would start this year
with a ROSE PARADE...
Going through photos of the past summer
has been a great way to spend this very frigid morning..
Dreaming of this summer's garden
is the perfect way to shake the winter blahs
and warm my heart :-)
My lovely English lady
Gertrude Jekyll was the first to bloom
and my most reliable bloomer,
besides she smells incredible...
The climbing Cecile Brunner's tiny blooms
on the other hand
bloomed for only a brief moment...
The delight of the first small summers bouquet...
Burgundy Iceberg was new to the garden this year,
I love her cottage style in the mixed beds...
Roses just to play with...
Roses to float...
Just for J...
The wild and casual style of
the Ballerina rose
speaks of lazy summer days...
Enchanted Evening was also new this year,
she is a favorite!
She had a rough time in the wet spring,
I hope she makes it through the winter...
I think the Eden rose is perfectly named,
She takes my breath away
every time I see her...
I don't think there is a stronger lady
than the Queen Elizabeth Rose
she bloomed till the first snow...
I can't wait for the garden catalogs
to show up in my mailbox:-)
Come get your girlie girl on
and join Pink Saturday
Thanks for stopping by today!
