Our Garden Roses

My sister is visiting with me for a week from Vancouver and we have been enjoying reminiscing about the good old days. I am sharing lots of pictures of the roses blooming in our garden now.We are off to visit with our Mom shortly so just a quick post today.
Graham Thomas
hardy shrub rose and late peonies

Linda Campbell- new last year in our garden but I am really enjoying it.

John Davis-easy care and a good bloomer

Graham Thomas with monkshood in background
Prairie Princess-a lovly hardy climber for our climate.

New Dawn-I love it!
Willam Baffin -a good climber in our zone 5b garden
A minature rose from the grocery store several winters ago that I love
Sally Holmes -a modern shrub .I love the apricot buds with the creamy flowers
John Cabot-another hardy rose for cold climates
Ballerina rose that looks like a hygrangea

The Generous Gardener-a David Austen rose.

Queen of Denmark

And last but not least the pretty little Fairy rose-such a prolific bloomer and so easy care-one of my favorites for sure.
I hope you enjoyed a quick tour of my roses.

Thank you for visiting and thank you to all who leave such sweet comments!
Have a good day,

I love seeing all the different roses you can grow there. I wish I was in zone 5b, but I am in zone 3-4. Your roses are just beautiful.

Your roses are lovely! I'm taking some pink ones to my husband in the hospital this afternoon. His rose is the only standard one we have, but am thinking we need more after seeing yours. Mine are all miniatures that line the ramp up to our front door. I'll be using your post as my dream rose garden for now! Have a great time with your sister the rest of the week.

Yellow roses are my most favorite, but I love the peach ones too pictured in your post!

Enjoy your family!
All the best,

Ah my favorite garden, and my my favorite gardener. Thank you for providing the lovely scenery while I drink my coffee and beg my eyes to open up. There are two ladies who live up the road from me that have a garden section that makes me think of you. Not anywhere near as lovely or large, but a tiny section. I have told my husband I'm going to ask them to come down and help me next year when I get to landscape. He thinks they will think me the town crazy.

Your roses are wonderful. I love all of them. It's been so hot out here in Cali that mine have stopped blooming, I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. Anyway, you have a real talent with yours. Thanks for sharing. Mumzie :)
