Roses are Blooming


This week as the roses are coming into bloom I thought I would show some of the beautiful ones we have. If you walk around our garden you will always see  roses growing, many bought quite a few my wife had grown from a cutting.

The first rose you will see on coming out the back door is this standard one which has a wonderful perfume to it.

We have had this one a while but early this year I replanted it to this position on the patio

It has a small flower head but the plant is prolific when they come out, I'm hoping it will grow better in this position

This white one is also growing on the patio but is one we are growing on

Another one opposite the door called Gentle Hermione

 Another stunning one is Blue for You

 Which is full of roses

One of my favourites growing is this rambler called Veilchenblou 

Which has a beautiful flower

Looking past this clematis you can see my wife biggest success the Californica rose. We have had this rose nearly as long as we have lived in the house. It was moved when we had and extension and lived in a pot for a while. My wife rescued from nearly dying and nurtured it to what it is now and grew another from a cutting  

It has a prolific amount of rose heads

I could go on showing more but I will leave you with our most recent purchase  Mortimer Sackler which is still in it's pot and will be planted in due course

  1. You have a wonderful selection there. You must have lots of colour throughout the summer.

  2. Lovely roses! I must remember to take cuttings from my dearest ones.

  3. Your roses are so beautiful. Love all the colors and the varieties. You really are quite the rose gardener.

    1. I'm not my wife is the one who takes care of them

  4. They are lovely. I have few roses, I find them so much work to keep healthy. Or at least mine always did in the past!

  5. What a great collection of beautiful roses. When I was single and lived in Houston I had very good luck growing roses. I still love roses even though I don't grow them any longer.

  6. I am having a hard time picking a favorite! They are all so pretty, although I think the pink ones speak to me.

  7. They are beautiful and I love all the differnt colours.

  8. My gosh, these are gorgeous. What a healthy and happy garden you have!
    P.S. Yes, I do love wandering around the V & A. I can't wait to do it again.

  9. Beautiful, what is the name of the yellow one? Reminds me of on in my garden named "My Dad". Speaking of roses, mine are pruned for the winter, repotted and hopefully will keep growing through.

  10. Beautiful!
    Have a blessed day!

  11. Billy, what a wonderful collection of roses! That is my main love in the garden, so your post brought me much joy! I received a Gentle Hermione bare root a few weeks ago, and fingers crossed that it does good because we have had insane weather. Thank you for sharing!

  12. So pretty! Thanks for sharing at
