Roses, Roses...


We've just returned from a wonderful vacation to California to visit family...it was a wonderful, restful time of visiting, great meals, and sharing!   Thank you for all of your good vacation wishes and sweet comments on my last post while I was away!  I returned to flowering gardens...especially my roses!  Being in the north, I mostly grow climbers, as they are quite hardy.  They climb along the fence, arbors and trellises.




My dark pink roses were kind of all over the place...


so I decided to move my chippy garden chair out into the perennial garden as a makeshift support!


I love the whimsical feeling it gives the garden...



Until next time...I'm looking forward to catching up with what's been happening in blogland while I was away!

  14. Oh I just love your beautiful roses! My roses were doing great in the Spring, but now that it's gotten so hot they aren't looking so good anymore. Lucky you to have so many healthy ones! Love the cute chippy chair amongst them too.
