More Flowers

'Lions Fairy Tale' took years and years (five at least) to develop.  It's now finally producing some gorgeous flowers.  Sometimes a rose is worth the wait.

'Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria' is another rose that took many years to develop.  I'm so pleased it finally responded to all that water and fertilizer.

'Tradescant' is recovering.  It was in serious decline until I noticed it wasn't getting any water at all.  Oops!  Somehow it managed to survive a summer with no water.

The last of the Camellias until autumn

'Geranium Red' has the exact same fragrance as 'Fragrant Cloud', and the color is also very similar.  Unlike 'Fragrant Cloud', very little mildew.

It's fun that through a gap in the trees I can enjoy my neighbor's 'Livin Easy':

Clematis languinosa 'Candida' never does much, but it faithfully gives a handful of flowers every year.

  1. Beautiful! Thank you for the tour. We Californians seem to grow a lot of the same plants. Your Crepuscule looks exactly like mine right now (and no wonder), but I have climbing Mme Caroline Testout cascading into my red-leaved Japanese maple instead of Golden Celebration :)

    1. Mme Caroline is one I would like to have. Wonder if it would share space with KAV.

  2. So many flowers in bloom in bright, sweet colours. I love the tree with red foliage.

    1. I do like a lot of color, too much maybe! Sometimes the garden looks like a giant confetti toss.

  3. Lots of gorgeous flowers. I love Geranium 'Rozanne' with 'Tamora'. 'Julia Child' is pretty nice, too.

  4. Oh, that last photo really takes my breath away.

    1. Eventually that maple is going to shade GC, but for now, they are buddies!
