A Rosy Walk in the Garden



Summer's heat  has been making itself known
here in North Central Texas this whole month of June
however the heat has unwittingly helped me as I've finally
figured out how much and when to water my
potted yearling and new roses!





Growing roses  is always a challenge for any gardener
as roses can be finicky with their sunlight, soil, water,
bugs and fungus issues.
This year though I have finally figured out how much
and when to water my five little babies ~ of which
I am very happily thrilled!!!


And here are the results!

Roses with their leaves all filled in after plucking due to rose rust and some black spot.
This is Sceptre d'Isle, a lovely David Austin rose ~ which has really pretty multiple petals
on its little rose blooms.



Just two of the five roses are blooming right now and I wasn't thinking about snapping photos earlier this evening so I
didn't take any shots of the whole garden.


A photograph taken from the rear looking forward ~ love how the drip was captured!
Roses look a little sparse due to removing leaves with fungus but they have grown back
and look lovely now.

At the beginning of June I did happen to snap a few photos
and here you can see the how I've moved plants around
to get more morning sun and a little shade in the afternoon.
Our trailer's tongue and the front where our bedroom is
help provide much needed afternoon shade
for these babies!


Photograph unedited ~ I'd been out moving rocks around to create a little platform for each pot.
This was a watering day, too, as the hose never lies.  ;)


Where these two roses sit side-by-side, there is another rose to the left of the larger pot with the white bacopa just starting to trail down the sides ~ to the right in this above picture.
That pot is identical to these terracotta pots and along with a birdbath on the far left sitting under the drip from the bedroom a/c, a smaller flat-ish pot with pink gomphrena sits smartly
between the two.
A matching pot with lavender sits on the opposite side.
The rest of the plants can be seen around to the left of the
little walkway up to our Prairie Home's entrance.






Yoda ready for this evening walk waiting patiently while Mom shoots a few iPhotos.  ;)
Winchester Cathedral is a creamy white bloom with multiple petals.

I hope  you have enjoyed this mini garden tour today!
These are all David Austin roses with this white one above
is Winchester Cathedral ~ a beautiful all white rose.
Ignore the yellow tint ~ I added that in Lightroom
since it was evening.
;)
