More Climbing Maman Cochet rose and other pics

Flax lily bloom


George Tabor azaleas



Frangipani or Plumeria


Vanda orchids


‘Borderer’ rose (I think that’s what rose this is, now 100% sure though.)



Climbing ‘Maman Cochet’ bud


‘Louis Philippe’ or ‘Florida Cracker’ rose.







This rose I think is Old Blush, but I’m not sure about that either. This rose is growing up and over my shed from the north side.


More photos of the climbing rose ‘Maman cochet’.









That’s it for now. I’ve got to get ready to head off to work.

Never knew there was a Gladys Taber azalea. I'll have to track one down, as she's one of my favorite authors. As always, your garden is an inspiration. Your photographs make me long for summer. Today I spotted a few crocuses blooming. So soon we'll have flowers! Enjoy your day!

One of my favorite azaleas. They say it is a sport of the old Formosa, another favorite.

Your roses are spectacular. I'm seeing tiny buds here.

Hi FlowerLady, thanks for this blooming treat this morning. Today it is gray in gray here outside and it cheered me up to see all the wonderful blooms in your garden, especially my favorite 'Maman Cochet' ;-)!

I always love dropping by to see your roses. The Firecracker is a favorite.Your azalea blooms are so beautiful too. Have a wonderful week.

Loved seeing your rose blooms! MC is gorgeous. LP is beautiful, too. Amazing that Old Blush can grow from the north side! Good to know!

It's always a joy to see your gorgeous Roses. You have such a great collection. Your Vanda also caught my eye. What a beauty.

I'm drooling now over those beautiful roses. Love the Maman Cochet' rose and always the Louis Phillipe. Our azaleas have about faded away. I'm waiting on the row of white azaleas to bloom across the road from me and that's about all I see. Hope you have a good day at work.

Incredible roses! Your garden must be amazing right now! Sorry that I've been "away" but 2012 has been rough so far with family illnesses and worse.

Take care.

So very lovely! I can almost smell them. :) Kit

The roses are beautiful. I think I will look for a pale pink heirloom rose that will tolerate our climate.

Have a good day at work.

I have nver had my flax lily bloom. I love the pale pink roses, they look so delicate.

Karen said...

Oh, that flax lily is just gorgeous! You always have the prettiest roses.

I told Carl you liked the stainless steel allium. It was a very nice Valentine's Day surprise.

Our weather is so warm today, almost 80 degrees. I'm still worried, but I guess that's my pessimistic side showing again. This seems much too early for such heat.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, dear lady!

Your flowers are just beautiful, your pictures just make my day. Thank you for sharing.

Dear Flower Lady,

This may seem funny, but when I got to the roses in this post I could SMELL them. Honestly!

Thanks for stopping by my long overdue posting. It was a joy to see your name pop up.

This book is the finish of my 9th. I wrote Sunflower Houses over 20 years ago, then the others. Now I am finishing up two children's middle grade novels too.

Sending love across the rose scented miles,

Your lovely flower photos are such a joy--a real source of rest and inspiration.


All I can say is, WOW! I love all your roses. You must have some kind of green thumb to keep them all blooming so beautifully. And of course the Frangipani or Plumeria... take a big whiff for me please. I just love that fragrance!

Deb said...

Your photos of your roses are just beautiful, what a lovely collection of roses you have.
