More roses from Plum Cottage



Today has been gray, and very windy, with some rain, not enough to water things well, just a teaser. DH has been working on some trim work in our screened room, using 'curbside shopped' pecky cypress boards he found a few weeks back. This bit that he did looks really rustic/tropical a nice touch to the area. He has more trim work to do also, on the north side.

While he was doing that I was moving potted plants into the area, and adding some decorative touches. I didn't do at all what I thought I was going to do today, but that's the way it goes sometimes. You plan to do one thing and something else comes to mind.

Here are some more blooms I took the other day. I hope you all don't get tired of my roses. They are what's blooming around here and probably what I have the most of. :-)

My shed with Louis Philippe, who needs a trim.



La Marne in the foreground, Old Blush in the back.



La Marne and friend.




This is Homere, a real old fashioned beauty.

Look at all those petals. It is so heavy that it droops over.



This is more of Old Blush.



I forget what this flowering plant is called,
I think an every day garden name for it is basket flower.



That's it for now.
Thanks again for visiting, and for all the comments you leave.
They mean a lot and I try to answer comments and visit your blogs as well.


Happy Gardening.

How lucky to find some pecky cypress. I would love to come across some. I never tire of looking at roses, especially the old varieties...their large, multi-layered blooms are gorgeous. They add a lot of nice color to your garden.

That view of your shed and Louis Philippe may be my favorite one in your garden!

I never tire of your roses and just wish mine would do half as well.
