At the ends of this bed are Belinda's Dream and Reine des Violettes
If I could only have one rose it would be Belinda's Dream.
I love the peppery fragrance of Reine des Violettes especially when there's a mist of rain to heighten the scent.
Climbing Cecile Brunner has finally reached the
top of the Stick House.
Cecile Brunner's little Sweetheart Roses would have been
perfect for a different location but here she is.
Sombrueil bloomed and has more buds. Ancient Queen Elizabeth has green buds. Eclipse and Julia Child bloomed in the Yellow Rose bed and have more buds. Sunny Knockout is barely hanging on. Grandma's Yellow Rose is yet to bloom.
White Dawn is looking good considering that He-Who-Runs-Over-Things gave her a hard time last year. Lots of buds expected to open by Mother's Day.
Lots of my garden time lately was spent on Boxwood.
In another post we will talk about pruning facades.
Far away view of the Knock Outs.
Another look at Knock Out from the Pink end.
Oh, I almost forgot about Carefree Delight, the one rose that I did prune because it threatened the life of anyone mowing near it. It is totally carefree and starting to bloom. It always has a Mockingbird nest.
In other news, my Mule has starter and clutch problems. Parts are ordered.
