Oh my! over the past few days, we have finally seen some roses open up. Mind you – not only do we get the blooms, but every rose planted here at Fishtail Cottage is fragrant. So while I garden, or just sip my coffee on the patio – I get the pleasure of enjoying all of the aspects of owning a rose!
Climber – Colette
(my favorite climber & so fragrant, disease resistant!)
Amber Carpet Rose
Polar Joy Tree Rose
Cottage Rose & Awakening
By no means are these all the roses in the garden, several are still getting ready to bloom – which makes me so excited that I have more I can share about my roses! Below are a few photo’s of Roses in the landscape. Top photo – ‘Winchester Cathedral’ with Iris, ‘Leander’ with Snowball shrub and ‘Ruffled Cloud’ with yellow lupine.
Now don’t think these roses are perfect, they are definitely not! With all the rain we have had this year, I have plenty of black spot and yellow leaves – this next couple days – will be a clean up for my garden beds – as I’ve taken a hiatus over the past week due to a death in our family. Still cannot talk about it…but will in time!
