Garden Joys


Abraham Darby and New Dawn

Abraham Darby is pale pink when budding out and turns to a slightly peach color as it blooms.

An unusually pale pink Double Delight

My New Dawn is having a second bloom for the first time since I have had it.

The Gorgeous Eden Rose

I have been waiting nearly two years for this.  Only two blooms so far.  I hope I have more before the end of May.  By this time next year, I should have dozens.

Coming Soon . . . So Many Roses

In a week or so, this New Dawn Climbing rosebush is going to be absolutely smothered in blooms.

Blooms such as these luscious beauties.

In a few days my Queen of Sweden rosebush will have burst into bloom, as well.  Stay tuned for further developments.
