Rose garden

In front of my house, the rose garden is in its first flush. The red rose is ‘Proud Land’ and the lavender plants are blooming well nearby.

The roses of early summertime.

‘Julia Child’ rose

Oh the joy, two new rosebushes for an anniversary gift. This beauty is ‘Julia Child,’ named in homage to the queen of butter.

Butter yellow rose, as it should be, named after American icon Julia Child. And sweetly fragrant as well.

Snowfire rose

The roses are getting started very nicely.

Blood red petals with a snow white outside of the petal make Snowfire rose a real standout

Black petunias

I’d heard about these black petunias and finally saw them in person. Truly black, surprisingly pretty, almost iridescent. I believe they call the variety Black Mamba.
