Garden Beauties!

Hello everyone,

How could June have gone by so fast? I hope all you fellow Canadians enjoyed celebrating Canada Day. Anyway, as it is Show and Tell Friday, I am sharing some photos of some beautiful flowers that are blooming in our garden now.

The Terese Bugnet rose above is still blooming.

This is a Hansa rose-it is hardy and grows about 6 ft. tall.

Clustered bellflower- pretty in the garden and lasts a long time in a bouquet too.

This is Patti's Plum-an oriental poppy.

I love the color of this poppy but I can't remember the name of it.

This is such a huge bomb style peony-Sarah Bernhardt. I love it!

This is a new peony last year in our garden called Hawaiian Pink Coral.

David Austen's Mary Rose.

Macro photo- Walker's Low Nepeta.

Clematis -Josephine

Macro shot of Dianthus-love the fragrance.

Bell flower

Prairie Princess rose- hardy and pretty!

I love this peony-I think it is the Duchess of Nemours.

Some Clematis are starting to bloom-this is Dr Ruppel.

There is lots more blooming but I can't keep you all day when there is so much to enjoy at My Romantic Home where there are many more participants in Show And Tell Friday.

Thank you for visiting,


Enjoy your day,

Dear Carolyn, Happy Canada Day to you! So, so much beauty in your garden. I love the Hansa rose – we have one too, but not six feet tall. I believe your peach-colored poppy is 'Coral Reef'. Does that sound familiar? And Sarah Bernhardt is a wonderful peony. I also have Walker's Low Nepeta but can't control it. I haven't found a good way to stake it so it doesn't flop but the bees love it anyway. Thank you for sharing the joy of your garden! – g

I love your photos Carolyn I took a picture of the Peony Pink Hawaiian Coral at a Peony Festival recently. It was a gorgeous colour. My nepeta is beautiful when it first blooms but then it falls down. Oh well thats gardening isn't it.
