I have different varieties of hybrid roses. I wish I was brave enough to grow tea roses and antique roses but I am a bit intimidated by them. One of my favorite roses is New Dawn climbing rose. I wish they bloom as profusely as drift roses but I will take what I can get.
This was a new rose I added to my rose garden this year. I find its coral color to be so charming.
I like to think I am done adding garden beds for the season but I find myself flipping through gardening books and finding more and more inspirations to create more gardens. It truly never end and I love every second of it.
Here is one of the new gardens I planted a few weeks ago. It will be mostly roses as you walk down the path. As you can see half of my yard is completely shaded with big trees. Now that you have seen the rise of my roses, are you ready to see the fall of it? For the last few days it has been raining non stop. I woke up today to find my garden covered in rose petals and most of my plants flat on the ground....kinda sad and romantic at the same time. I spent this gloomy morning dead heading the roses.
My front garden just look like a sea of blue and purple.
I would love to hear about your favorite plants. I am such a novice gardener and I am learning as I go. I think I might just do one more garden bed...I swear I am done after that!! I have been dreaming of a peony and rose garden. I want to plant a row of peonies in the back with roses in the front. That way when peonies are done blooming then roses can take over. Can you recommend any roses that do well in zone 6? I love medium size roses that look and smell like roses but not as high maintenance. My little gardeners are ready for their summer vacation. I imagine a lot of the summer will be spent traveling or simply enjoying nature. I am quiet looking forward to both.
Happy Gardening, my friends.
