Rose Garden

One of the porches that we visited on our tour had some beautiful roses on a wooden table. The arrangement was only a foretaste of what was to come. When we walked around the back of the house we found the prettiest rose garden I have ever seen at a private residence. I thought you all might enjoy a few of the pictures taken while there.

The roses were partly in the shade and hard to photograph due to the lighting. The pictures do not do them justice.

Roses have to be one of the most beautiful flowers don't you think? (Of course I say that about all flowers.)

Although the roses stole the show, there were some other flowers in the garden, too.

I have never had much luck with roses myself, but this garden made me want to try my luck again. Maybe one day I will......

They are lovely! Try knockout roses as they are so WONDERFUL! I was picking a few in my garden and they even smell good. No diseases or spraying and no skill required. I'm sold-can you tell?

good morning, carla!

i have enjoyed this garden tour immensely. thank you!
roses are difficult, but not if you get the ones who can
be neglected. there are some very resilient strains who
bloom at least twice, may and october.

'keep flowing' was pretty funny. :)

The bouquet is lovely. I agree with you, roses have to be the most perfect flower. I always marvel when I see photos of southern rose bushes. Up here they never get that tall.

Katarina said...

I agree with you too! Roses are my favourites!

Those rose are gorgeous! I'm not a big fan of knockout roses although they are beautiful, and do bloom forever. I'm like my grandmother, we both love the antique roses!
