Hi everyone! I thought I’d share a few photos of the roses that are in bloom right now.
This is a Climbing Cecile Brunner Rose growing on the side of my barn (which is actually a barn shaped storage unit but I like to call it a barn). I’m a farm girl at heart! This is a vigorous climber!
It’s such a beautiful rose. It will get some other blooms throughout the summer but not as many as in the spring. It also has a beautiful scent!
This is a Don Juan. It has HUGE flowers this year! It must have really liked all the rain we got the past fall and winter. This is a great Southern Rose. It’s a climber but supposedly doesn’t grow more than 10 ft. which makes it great for columns. Which is where I have mine growing.
This is a climbing Iceberg. That’s a white Clematis on the right hand side – it’s a fussy plant. It had a few blooms this year. Usually I don’t get anything but I like look of the green leaves. So it can stay LOL!
A closeup of the Iceberg. This rose is in my White Garden – everything that blooms in this bed is a shade of white.
This is a Savannah Rose. I had to have this one because my daughter’s name is Savanna! It’s really not a prolific bloomer at all but the few blossoms it does get are really pretty.
This is a pink Knockout that I planted last year. They grow pretty quickly!
I don’t remember the name of this rose But I love it because it’s red with a yellow center.
My favorite color combination!
This is my very favorite rose and was the only one that was here when we bought this house. All the other’s I’ve planted. If anyone knows the name of this rose please let me know. I’d love to plant more. It only blooms in the spring but it’s incredibly beautiful!
It has multi-flowers on a stem! So each stem is like a little bouquet!
I actually have a few more roses but I’ll save them for another time. BTW I don't use any chemical sprays on my roses. I grow mostly shrub roses & climbers that don't have too many problems with pests or black spot. I don't expect florist perfect roses in my yard.
The hydrangeas are getting ready to bloom too! So I'll have photos of them soon. Hydranges and roses are my favorite flowers!
Thank you for stopping by and all you Mom’s out there – I Hope You Have a Wonderful Mother’s Day!
