yeah Shar (Rose Racer) you just wanna charm all the cops in town so you can tear up those roads! Then again who knows what favors may come from good timing and great flowers...
It's a great idea. I had a similar idea for deep earth tones in a bed of their own based around one iris, a multicolor plicata: SPOOKY from keppel. I love the idea of blacks & silver and pink. GOOD LUCK!
Oooooh, I LIKE that idea. I'd steal it if I had any artistic ability at all, but since I can't even arrange a single rose in a vase, let alone design a garden, I'll just wait impatiently to see pictures. GOOD LUCK!
You all are too funny!
Now that I am outside much of the time, I see my Road Racer buddy circling the block often. He drives really really slow, then he waves. Nice man.
Oh, and I am trying to use Lady X as my centerpiece rose, but it seems to have weak stems, and the blooms are too heavy for the stems. I was too anxious to get started and didn't do enough research when I settled for her, I think. We all might have to wait till next year while this story continues.
One day soon I'm going to plant a 'chocolate' garden, and I've starting looking for plants named after Christmas since my DH puts up about 35,000 Christmas lights each winter (that number is not and exageration!)
Black flowers make my neighbors pop, too. They say, "What the heck is that?"
A man asked me last week, "Are those BLACK tulips?" When i said yes, he said, "What, are you in mourning? Did somebody die?"
Then again, i'd like to pop some of my neighbors...
