June has come and The Garden is in full BLOOM.
I have done the FIRST DEADHEADING this past weekend and look forward to the next wave of BOOM!
This TREE ROSE is in my Front garden and I cannot recall the name for the LIFE OF ME!
ANYONE have an idea…….its NOT BALLERINA!
My Garden in the BACKYARD is mainly YELLOW and WHITE.
I read years ago to DO JUST TWO COLORS as it has MORE of an IMPACT…………..
Remember I did this GARDEN with THE ITALIAN and I had NO IDEA what I was doing!
I bought plants that spoke to me and that had a FRAGRANCE……………NOW I’M Paying for that FRAGRANCE as my allegeries are Driving me crazy!
I was NEVER ONE to pick and display as they last longer attached to the rose plant!
However, this year I have broken THAT HABIT!
This URN went to a FRIEND’s house we were going to for dinner.
She has PULLED me into the local GARDEN CLUB!
I see a CROWN Hanging off to the RIGHT!!!!!!
