Some Roses Beginning to Bloom

A bud of Elle with petals unfurling in a perfect whirlpool.

Sheila's Perfume  blooming with its usual perfection and generosity.

A cluster of erodiums and bacopa under a spirea. Even though the tags say both perennials should be planted in full sun, mine do much better in dappled shade.

This is Crystal Fountain, a group 2 clematis. It is not supposed to do well in my area, but I am glad it does not know it because it is certainly thriving. Sometimes you just have to try things out for yourself no matter what anybody says :)

  1. Bonjour,
    Je collectionne les roses en France et je n'arrive pas à trouver le rosier 'SUNNY JUNE', le connaissez vous, merci.
    Votre blog est très beau.
