Bouquet close up

I picked a bouquet of mostly red flowers today. ‘Double Delight’ rose, a very dark burgundy day lily, and a little ruby red ‘Lucifer’ crocosmia in my back yard, for you.

You can see the pollen on the day lily petals…

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.
