The recent rains have damaged some of my rose petals, but it’s still fun to see ‘Memorial Day’ putting out blooms that are not totally eaten by thrips.
We got four inches of rain today. That must be more than we’ve gotten in the past few months combined! The roses sure are not complaining…and this ‘Chris Evert’ bloom was especially pretty covered in raindrops. :)
Tonight Squirt and I enjoyed our ‘Tropical Sunset’ (Squirt from his grill, me from behind the mower). We’re having record highs in the mid-90s…when is the cool October weather going to arrive?
Happy Mum-mum Day! Here’s a ‘Peace’ rose to celebrate. :) I went over to Missy’s Diner and enjoyed the early morning birding hour. Check out the updated pictures.
The garden is so pleasant with so many roses in bloom!
‘Melody Parfumee’ is so pretty covered in bloom. I love how her new flowers are dark purple and they lighten as they age.
The roses burst into bloom this week. It’s so strange to look across and see straight into Carla and Peter’s yard. The roses are going to enjoy the extra sunlight, though!
‘Bella Roma’ was hit really hard by the thrips this summer, and I haven’t seem decent blooms on the bush since April. This one was particularly pretty.
‘St. Patrick’ is blooming great! It’s the tallest in the yard and it’s covered in blooms right now.
This rose is ‘First Prize’ in my book. I love the deep pink color.
‘Hot Cocoa’ is one of the more unusually colored roses in the garden. It’s really pretty when it’s covered in raindrops.
My ‘Dream Come True’ rose is one of the few that wasn’t bothered a bit by the chilli thrips this summer. It grows so tall over the mailbox each bloom cycle. I think I’m going to have to move it this winter, or the poor mailman is going to stop delivering our mail because of […]
More pictures of ‘Gemini’…I think I have more pictures of this rose than any other rose. It blooms so often! :)
This picture of ‘St. Patrick’ really shows the green tints of the rose.
‘Double Delight’ has grown up nice and tall after its winter transplant. It and St. Patrick are now the two tallest bushes in the bed.’Double Delight’ has grown up nice and tall after its winter transplant. It and St. Patrick are now the two tallest bushes in the bed.
‘Gemini’ had some beautiful blooms tonight. Squirt and I enjoyed hanging out on the porch together after work. :)
‘Peace’, dude! The roses are so pretty when they are sprinkled with dewdrops.
Finally! The roses are starting to bloom again and ‘Dream Come True’ is looking great! It’s one of the few roses that wasn’t bothered this summer by the crazy chilli thrips.
‘Gold Medal’ is starting to bloom again and the butterflies like the blooms almost as much as I do. :)
Finally! The first fully open blooms from ‘Deja Blu’!
