A Visit to a Rose Garden Last Summer

Roses with pink edges, white inside

Pond with water lillies

I thought I had written this post last summer, but discovered today that I had not.

Peach rose

So it’s been a few months, and I have forgotten all of the names of the roses and flowers. There are a few flowers whose signs I took a photo of, but unfortunately this peach rose isn’t one of them.

Tall red flowers at the arboretum

It was a hot Saturday in June, if that helps describe things.

Various plants at the arb

In this shot, the big wavy green leaves immediately above of the small red flowers, and to the left of the pointy flat leaves, are from a horseradish plant (Armoracia rusticana). The spicy, zippy condiment is made from the root of the plant, but I never knew what the greens look like.

Busy bumblebees on lavender

The lavender was crawling with bumblebees. I love watching them bumble around, but my daughter would not come near.

Cactus and yellow flowers in New Jersey

Cactus growing in New Jersey? I wish I had taken a picture of the name of this one.

Roses with pink edges, white

Another pretty but nameless face.

This lovely pale rose is called New Dawn.

Black petunias

This pot containing black petunias was interesting. I had never seen those before.

These roses are called Tiddly Winks!

Ornamental onion allium schubertii

This Space-Age ornamental onion makes me smile each time I see it.

OK, so that post is about 6 months late, but better late than never.

    1. Thank you! Yes I’m not sure if they are meant to survive actually. We recently got two feet of snow! Maybe they are planted each year. I should find out more about that this year, that will be a fun little project.

    1. Thank you Lynn!! I’m so happy that you enjoyed it and want to feature me! I’m honored, yes that sounds great πŸ™‚ I’m sorry but I just saw this comment in the spam folder. WP sent several legit comments to spam during the past few days-why?? I hope they get their spam filter fixed soon.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
