Hello to all my dearest gardening buds and new ones who've joined Dave's !!..
The gardens have been in full Spring Swing for weeks but I am late to the party with pics..so here are some..Hope you enjoy...
Side Gardens..full of color..roses & clematis for sure
Climbing Rosa "Tess of the d'Urbenvilles" might be one thorny bugger but she is breathtakingly eyepoppingly gorgeous this year..she is breaming with Clematis to bloom..."Pink Champagne","John Huxtable" & "Ramona" and I added "Ragamuffin"
I adore this peachy little number..Rosa "Tamora"..what a delight and such a yummy fragrance..those naughty Clems..they are always trying to get into the photo's everytime I click one..that is naughty "Ramona" trying to upstage "Tamora"..see her smiling in the background?
My other "Ramona"..she has two new clematis planted with her this year along with cl. rosa "Autumn Sunset'..I planted "Dancing Queen" and "Prinsess Alexandria"..can't wait till they all grow up together
Proteus" got a major haircut last year from me and is coming back with a vengence...In all these many years I've had him..not ever have I seen him double..either I have a strange one or attribute it to my Southern Climate..I use to always be so envious of Miguel's doubles
Look at my new tuteurs...new roses "Colorific" and "Lion's Fairy Tale" were just planted yesterday and I planted Clematis 3 new clematis with each one...yipppeee..it never ends does it?..Hope you enjoyed..I have tons more but don't want to give you overload..LOL..hugzzz..Jeanne
very nice, as always! How old is your Huldine? I have one on order, but have a plant that is 3 years old that has never flowered. I am going to be moving her soon with hopes that the move will bring on some flowers.
We're in a for a treat!!! Jeanne is back with her fabulous clematis collection. It will take me a while to really savor all the beauty to be able to make sensible comments. lol. Thanks Jeanne for sharing those wonderful photos.
I`m ready for "overload" Jeanne! Bring it ON !!! Your roses and clematis are so beautiful. I can`t imagine how my little garden could ever look like yours...Thank you so much for sharing and send more...Love it. Lesley
You do have a way with clems, Jeanne! Wish I could get you up here to nurse mine along. My clems are just beginning to get leaf buds. Of course it might help if the temps got out of the low 40s up this way. Grrrrrr
I know there is a clematis named for Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Okay clematis growers, let's get one named for the new Princess or whatever her title is now. What a fairytale wedding that was yesterday. Does she remind you of Princess Grace of Monoco but with different color of hair? Such grace and natural beauty!
