In my garden
The hydrangeas are starting to bloom more.
I'm so happy to.
I thought they were not going to bloom this year.
This light pink hydrangea plant was a cutting taken from Hubby's Aunts house many many years ago.
Before we moved to our home, we had it in a container that was on our condo balcony. When we move to our home we planted it in the only area of the home that had shade. Thank goodness because I really love having them in my garden.
It is a wonderful memory of Hubby's Aunt now. I do hope it will continue to bloom.

My new rose in my garden.
Hybrid Tea Romantica
I picked this rose because of the description that I read.
It looks like an old fashion rose with lots of petals, wonderful aroma, beautiful coral pink and a good cutting rose.
The rose is a quartered bloom (form roses have four sections of petals rotating around the four different centers). The photo above shows it some what.
So far I am happy with it. The hight expected for it is 5-6 ft' and it will get to be 3-4' wide.
I can't wait.
"brilliant" pink iceberg rose bush.
I had Hubby move it from the front of the house to the rose area.
I do think it will do much better here.
there is more room for her to grow.
I do love the different shades of pinks that I get from this bush.
I'm very happy with it.
This beautiful lavender/plum rose bush just gave a stunning burst of blooms and the fragrant was just amazing when I was next to it.
As the blooms mature they change to lavender.
I like the lavender agains the plum colored buds.
Pink loveliness of Yves Paget roses.
My containers in the patio area are so pretty right now.
My "confection JAcute" mini rose is full of beautiful tiny blooms.
This container of creeping Jenny and the red geranium has never looked so good.
Second bloom for my "rainbow's end"

My "radiator Charlie" plant did not make it. I am not sure what went wrong. It was dying back and the fruit on it was not getting any bigger and the flowers were not staying on. : (
I may purchase another large container and add another tomato plant for the area.
We had to add a net around the Celebrity tomato plant. I think the Mocking birds were picking at the ripe tomatoes that were ready to be picked. I was not a happy Gardener that morning. I do hope the net will work.
The lemon cucumbers are really growing and they have a lot of flowers.
On my last post I did show some of my seedling that were almost ready to transplant.
I found some plastic container that were on sale at Jo-anns store. I do hope they do good in them.
I just ran out of room in my veggie area.
The weather we have been having is the typical May grey and June glum. Some very warm days and some days of heavy drizzle. All good and I am enjoying it because I know that the hot days are just around the corner.
Sorry for the very long post but I wanted to share with you on what was going on in my garden.
I hope to share some crafty projects with you next time.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
Wishing you a wonderful day.
