Wild flowers

These wild flowers are gorgeous.  They are the first of many to come. Such beautiful scenery to a company my morning run.... 

Johasine hanet

This is a rose from my lovely friend Christina. We have been waiting all year for it to bloom. Unfortunately its first bloom has a vegetative center. For those who do not know what that is it. this happens when the plant starts to grow another bloom inside of the one that is blooming. I am pretty confident I over fertilized and thus a green center. My friend Christina writes a lovely a blog called Organic Dreams. She gardens one hundred percent organic and even has worms for composting. I have a link in my side bar.

The Alchemist

This one time blooming shrub has the most gorgeous colored blooms. Thats probably why i keep it even though it only blooms once a year..

Golden celebration

How can i even describe this magnificant rose.   Its blooms are the perfect shade yellow.  They are very large and full of petals.  The smell is a fresh citrus smell.  This is such a large bush i had to go on my neighbors side of the fence to capture a picture.  You can even see the house tiles behind it.  David Austin you are such a genius.  Your roses are superb.....
