Happy Saturday! I just had to have this big peony bloom be the first pic today. I am so in love with them, and they smell wonderful!
But here is what I wanted to show you today.... Here is a bed in June of last year....
(I can't wait for the lilly blooms...lol...not yet!)
And here it is today! Can you believe it? Look how much the roses have grown!
Here is another view of the Welcome Home Rose....
Look how big the fully open bloom is compared to my hand.
Here is my Painted Moon Rose, it is very orange right now, but gets coral and yellow in the petals later in the summer. Have you ever seen such pretty foliage on a rose. So dark and glossy, with burgundy hints all year.
Here is a close up, its blooms are not nearly as big, but they are so unusual.
Another shot of the bed.
Close up of the Sweet William in bloom. Very pretty red one. I have more seed of these popping up and about 4 inches tall, so they will bloom next year I'm guessing.
Anyway, I just thought it was neat to see how much things change in a year. This is the walkway to our back deck, behind the garage. Is is south facing and full sun.
