The Roses Have Arrived

Song - Romanza by Andrea Bocelli

Love this one's name - "Playgirl"

Oh my goodness 
but my garden is just a riot of color right now! 

We had a few days in the eighties last week and everything exploded.  The Roses are just amazing and with their first bloom they always have a little more color.  But as the summer wears on, they tend to fade (like me!).

I would like you to meet my garden.......and if you are ever in the area, please stop by and say "hello".

"Sombrueuil" growing along the stairs

"Golden Celebration" (I think)

"Double Delight" - My Grandfather's favorite

Even the shade garden is blooming.  Don't you just love white and green?  To me it is so soothing.

A flat of Zinnia's waiting to be planted.  Unfortunately I bought them just as the heat wave hit and I lost a couple.  But MOM I have be watering them twice a day!!!

 The Bearded Iris are still putting on quite a show.  I was talking with a friend in Painting Class today and we both agreed that for what ever reason, the Iris are spectacular this year

"French Lace" one of my favorites!

The Sweet Pea's are happy as well.

 I wish blog's had a "scratch & sniff" so you could smell this sweet Lilac!

"Sally Holmes Climber"

"Sharifa Asma"

"John F. Kennedy"

And the Dogwood trees...... ahhhhh......

Thanks for visiting!
