Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

This week for Show and Tell I'm sharing my Eden Rose! It's in its second year now and it's amazing how much bigger it is now compared to last year! 

Most of the roses are turned to face the sun which unfortunately for me is on the other side of my fence.  I walked up my neighbors driveway to take the photo below....

The good thing about it facing away from my house is that I'm not torn between leaving the blooms on the bush or cutting them! I've been cutting a lot for bouquets!  Here's a bouquet I brought to work this week...

My Endless Summer Hydrangea is also blooming now...

The flowers are so pretty. I have never had any luck with roses and have all but given up on them. Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden.

Hi Cindy,

Love your roses so much. Wish I could own a garden like you. Thanks for sharing and Happy Mother's Day.

Elsie said...

Cindy your roses are beautiful and
so lined up on that arch. At least
they could do is turn around and
peek at you once in a while.LOL.
Your hydrangea is so gorgeous. Mine
has buds all over but none have
bloomed out yet. I had some pink
and some blue last year. I will see
if I can get that kind of rose here. I would love to have one that
color. I rooted a New Dawn rose and
just planted it in March over my
arch. It bloomed a few blooms,but
will be better next year. I love
your roses,I would cut them too if
they wouldn't look at me.Do you put
Epsom Salt on them? What can of
fertilize do you use?:O)

Elsie said...

I meant kind of fertilizer.

I have another month before I see a rose in the Catskills, I can't grow Eden, and my Endless Summer hydrangeas will be newly planted...thanks for sharing so I can feel summer early!
