A Glimpse of Roses
Belinda's Dream was a gift from Janie. I added a Sweet William in exactly the same shade, next to the bunnie's butt. Bath's Pinks are great companions. I look forward to the lilies blooming, Elodie and Algarve, despite the pets' help.
Knockout, the original, blooming in the Upper Garden. Pineapple Sage has been added to this bed, a perfect color match.
Sweet William makes a good companion to roses. This one is a perfect rose color. Rose de Rescht, planted nearby, has not bloomed yet.
The Chicken Rose, or Grandma's Yellow Rose as TAMU dubbed it, blooms in a bed with other yellows, and white. The white blur behind is white pentas. Susie brought me the first white pentas I've had, perfect for this spot.
