It has been raining here everyday for what seems like forever. All my roses are budded, but no blooms yet. I bought a new hybrid tea rose that was on sale. Sunny Daze by Pan Am. Tag says the colour won't fade, so we will see. It has a strong fragrance and should bloom continuous.
Very pretty and nice straight upright growth.
Here's a few pictures of the yard. Sure wish we could get some sunny days. next week should be very colourful. I had a tree peony for over 5 years and it finally bloomed this year. Don't know the variety, but was pleased with the bloom being pink
Joanne super yard as always! Caroline's comment on the stripes is so true.
Nice Mimula. I have some that I direct seeded from saved seeds that should be splotched like that. Caroline I could save you seeds for next year. Will post photo's when they flower to see if you like them they will be mixed for sure.
Thanks all! We had a cool wet May and June. It really didn't get very warm until early July and that's when we went camping for 2 weeks. The girl that I hired for watering did an extremely good job. Everything is doing great and I have her to thank.
Most of my baskets are originally bought as a 10" or 12" combo. I simply repot them into a bigger pot. I use Smart Cote slow release fertilizer 14-14-14 and Premier ProMix BX potting soil.
I wrote an article on creating big balls of colour. If you are interested in seeing it, send me a dmail.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of touring Joanne's garden.
It is even more beautiful than the pictures.
Everything is grown really well and healthy.
Her artistic sense is every where!
She also has a good sized vege patch with more amazing plants.
I'm glad that I had a little garden tour on Sunday since it a mess now. Bad hail storm last night. There was still hail along one fence this morning. Made a mess of the veggies. Few dints in the car too
