Well, I was off work yesterday for the holiday and the weather was so nice I wanted to piddle around in the yard some. We purchased some new plants to go in the little window planters so I got those nestled into their new homes. I don’t remember what the yellow flowers are, but I thought they looked pretty good together.
Our tiny little ‘Crepuscule ‘ rose is rewarding us with new blooms. It’s only about ten inches tall and wide, but it will grow.
This is clematis ‘Galore’. Jamie and I just started collecting them last year when we found some really reduced in price at one of the stores. We decided to let them grow up the same poles where we planted the roses.
I don’t know the name of this rose. It’s an old antique shrub rose and it has the most incredible scent. Do any of you know what it is?
Several weeks back Jan at Always Growing published a post about an azalea called ‘Amelia Rose’. I’m not a huge fan of azaleas although we have several, but when I saw this I had to have it. I was lucky enough to find it a couple of weeks ago. We bought two of them , one will mature to full size and the other is being trained into a tree.
This False Indigo Baptisia didn’t do a single thing last year and I almost shovel pruned it. I’m so glad I left it. What a beautiful color it is now.
These gladiolus are native to our area and can be found on roadsides and old home places. They are surprising slow to multiply, but are certainly a beautiful color.
I’m really pleased with this combination. We didn’t plan it this way, but I was noticing in the picture how nice these three plants look together. When they get a little growth on them it’s going to be very pretty.
Peggy Martin it showing off for us, this rose reminds me an awful lot of the wild roses around here we use to call seven sisters…
Last but not least is ‘Sugar Candy’. The irises are also putting on a show right now, but I’m saving that for another post.
