Welcome Spring 2015

Welcome Spring


The last few weeks we have our temperatures range from mid 70's to low 90's.

My roses are starting to bloom.

My Henry Fonda bush was the first to show off it's butter yellow blooms. It is an amazing yellow.

The garden is beautiful as the sun sets.

Buds of Princesse deMonecco 

 Pope John Paul II

Sunsprite tree rose

One "pink peace" rose in a tea cup.

I picked up my replacement "gourmet popcorn" rose bush.
The first one I received did not do so well and I also had to take back my other new rose, Liv Taylor.  Fungus was starting to show on most of the leaves and the branches were turning brown. The garden center hopes to have the replacment in a week or two. 

 The buds are so tiny.  I hope this one will do much better.
This will be planted one the sunny side of the house.   The petals are heart shaped.  Hubby pointed that out to me.  Sweet.


 I had to have these two mini tree roses.
Their new home? The front porch.

The smaller one is called "rainbows end" (Weeks roses) and the taller one is called "The trumpeter"(Star roses and plants)
They will only receive the full morning sun.  I hope that will be enough for them.

Another must have for me was a Scabiosa "Mariposa Blue" plant.

Three of my rose bushes have some yellow leaves.  They receive enough water so I'm thinking they need some nitrogen.  

Thank you for stopping by.  Wishing you a wonderful Spring or for my blog friends in Australia, Wishing you a beautiful Autumn of wonderful color.

Hello Bobbie Lynn and Opie.

Your roses are looking strong and healthy, the little white one is a real beauty. Scabiosa is such a great tough plant.You are lucky that the nursery was willing to replace the roses for you, having a weak plant just affects the others around it too.

Happy gardening.
