Bragging about Roses

So I have to brag a bit here – thanks for the beautiful photograph entitled “Rose for you” that you sent me last night! Its beautiful – the rose and the photograph!

For our readers … the rose is from Barbie’s garden and she took the photograph with her new camera and new-found talent for photography. How beautiful is it? As a lover of roses it was the perfect e-gift for me! I’m such a novice gardener that I am frankly very wary of trying my hand at maintaining a rose bush in my garden so I often buy roses to put in vases in my house. Maybe one day I will feel confident enough to actually have one in my garden.

Have a wonderful gardening week!

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

Likewise – was just toooo busy, but I did the spraying thing with my new 4l sprayer. Sprayed, watered and deadheaded. All I had time for before it got dark 🙂
More is nog ‘n dag!!

A profusioin of colour and scents it will be. Funny, I almost feel guilty not working in the garden today – heehee! But I did manage to water it!

I can’t wait for “bulb season” to start! Bought a book and been reading lots. I did have great success growing flowers from bulbs years ago when i lived in the cottage in Green Point, so I’m hoping it will work well again! I love the smell of spring booms and they make such wonderful cut flowers for the house! Tulips, Sparaxis, Anemones … there are so many I love. I want this garden of mine to be a profusion of colour next spring 🙂

Such a pleasure – I know you are a flower fan and the rose is the most perfect flower – well, I think it is. I know that you will try your hand at growing bulbs this year – wait until they bloom, then you will be amazed at how they fill your garden. Enjoy the rose (pic!) my friend!
