  2. They all look so great. I really need to get 'Julia Child'. I love 'The Endeavor' and have not heard of that one.

    1. 'Julia Child' is wonderful, blooms plentiful and plant stays compact, so you'll have room for it.

      'The Endeavour' not recommended outside of SoCal/AZ, due to zero BS resistance.

  3. Ah! It's always so nice to come here and get a rose fix. Thanks for sharing your great pictures. 'Lady Emma Hamilton' and 'Munstead Wood' are my favorites today. Looks like you've planted a nice color echo Salvia with 'Munstead Wood' too.

    1. The color of 'Munstead Wood' is just delicious. The combo was inadvertent--there just happened to be an open space next to the Salvia. I've been getting my rose fix several times a day the past few weeks. April is not always the cruelest month.

  4. What a display! I'm sure your neighbors are enjoying the show. Other than 'Joseph's Coat', all I've seen is a bloom here and there from my roses. I haven't even seen a bud on 'Lady Hamilton' and my 'Meidiland Pink' just have a few shy blooms, which is a weird.

    1. 'Lady Emma' is slow to get going. Did you hit them with fertilizer? 'Julia Child' got extra, and look what she did.

  5. Is that 'Love and Wishes ' salvia in the shot of 'Munstead Wood'? Thrilling combo.

    That is an insane amount of production from 'Julia Child'. My favorite for individual loveliness of bloom is 'Moondance'.

    The scent must be intoxicating.

    1. Yes 'Love and Wishes'. I wish I had thought of the combo myself instead of it being an accident.

      April is pretty intoxicating!

    2. Whoa - the fragrance where you are must be amazing... I know just Twilight Zone alone smells amazing!

    3. The fragrance winners here are 'Firefighter' and 'Bishops Castle' which broadcast out about 10 feet from the flower.

    4. Nice! I've heard others say that Firefighter is a good one, too. :)

      Delete
    5. Anna, 'Firefighter's fragrance remains strong and sweet right up until the flower falls apart.

  7. Oh wow, that's really outstanding. The colors go so well together, they are absolutely delicious.
    I'll bring your photos up tomorrow and show them to the little 'Julia Childs' which appeared on my doorstep this morning. She has quite a bit of growing to do but your pictures should inspire her!

    1. Won't be long before she blooms for you. She's a gem.

  8. When I was in Greece last April most every little home had an ancient looking rose in front.

    1. Greece! That must have been a fascinating visit. Roses in gardens go back to ancient times...
