I don't know where to look first
Ik weet echt niet meer waar ik het eerste kijken moet. Na twee koude grijze dagen
is het weer zomer in mijn tuintje. Overal om mij heen barsten de knoppen open van
de rozen open. Enige probleem is de droogte. Raar om dat als nederlander te zeggen
want meestal klagen we over de harde wind en regen (LOL). Vanavond toch de tuinslang
maar uitrollen want de droogte is goed te zien in de rozen. Geel blad!!
I don't know where to look first. After two cold grey days it's summer time again!!
Everywhere I look the buds of the roses bursting. The only problem we have is
the drought. I know it sounds strange to read that from a Dutch. Normaly we always
are complaining about the strong winds and rainfall. (fun). Tonight it's time to give the
garden some water because yellow leaves in the roses shows it needs water.
Pat Austin is huge. (click on a photo to enlarge)
Frontgarden with Sourire d'Orchidee on the right
At the back A Shropshire lad. Is more than 2.50 m high now. This rose showed me that
a rose does want to grow on it's own natural way. They don't like to be tied up
When the first roseflower opens I am always dreaming about how this rose Fantin Latour
would look like if all the flowers would be opening at the same time. Best way to keep
this rose healthy is to let it grow on the natural way. No pruning
As far as possible I love to follow the opening of the rose flowers
And I am not the only one who love's roses
Mme Isaac Pereirre. I thought that the color of this rose would be much darker.
But it is not. I had to lift it up out of the folliage. She was hiding.
Queen of Sweden
The first rose that ever came into my garden Golden Showers
And the huge James Galway
Jacqueline du Pré was at her best in the year I planted it 3 years ago. Gets smaller
every year. I was suprissed that it's stil here. Only 1 flower
Commandant Beaurepaire new planted this spring is doing it's best.
Maidens Blush is showing some buds also planted in spring
Crown Princess Margarethe
So many beautiful buds in Souvenir d' Alphonse Lavallé no photo can show how beautiful it is.
Abraham Darby can you imagine the scent that it gives when I open my frontdoor.
Eugene de Beauharnais. As far as I can rememer the flowers were much more
darker as they are now. Maybe something to do with the sunny weather that
we did not have the year before.
Erinnerung an Brod is on it's way
2018 is the year of the Insects I can't remember having so many lice in the roses and a
miracle it is that the flower still opens
Purple Splash/O wow
I did have a fantastic day out in my garden. I hope your day was special too!!!
Have a wonderful rest of Sunday
