Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  I finally have photos of my climbing Eden rose to share today!  Eden is also known as "Pierre de Ronsard".  I know I've said this a million times...I LOVE LOVE LOVE this rose! It's my all-time, hands-down, favorite rose!!!  It takes my breath away every time I see it!  I planted this about 3 years ago and it just gets better and better each year!

My neighbors get the best view.... I had to go walk up their driveway to take this photo.  I only have about half the blooms on my side because it doesn't face the sun.  






I made this mosaic a couple years ago but had to share it again....

Cindy, your roses are amazing, and that part of your home, your courtyard patio is one of my favorites, by the way. I love all the photos of your pretty white umbrella, and all the lovely plants and furniture. Great job on the Tour de Cure too! tami

My post this week is a table done by friends, but it uses all my dishes and linens. Hope that counts. ;-)

Gorgeous roses, Cindy! I linked up my second furniture re-do using your directions. Earlier this year I made over an old stereo cabinet -- now a buffet. And now I have a sweet little bench, thanks to you. I'm finishing up my third project of the year, and I appreciate your helpful advice and willingness to share!

Richard Cottrell said...

I Love, Love, Love those Roses. I have tried to grow them, but somehow, they do good the first year and then freeze back to all red. Makes me so sad, but your's are beautiful. When I lived in East Hampton, New York, I used to drive over by Martha Stewards house in the spring as she had roses just like yours over an arch on the entrance to her home. It was so beautiful. You are lucky to have them. I just Love them. RC at My Old Historic House

BEAUTIFUL...BEAUTIFUL...BEAUTIFUL!!! CINDY.
I would love to be your neighbor, I bet they smell so good.

How is your father doing? Maybe you

Ami w/AliLilly said...

I wanted to come by to let you know that I posted a few pictures of my birthday HIKE on my Pioneer Woman's Pig Cake! It was a simple hike but everything we go I always think of you. I have totally falling in love with it too! :)

Magali @ The Little White House said...

Oh my! Your roses are gorgeous! I love their faded colour. I so want that colour in my garden. The previous owners liked flashy colours, even in flowers! So I'm going to slowly change the garden...

Julie Morris said...

My favourite eva!

Pam said...

Thank you for hosting the party! Your rose is amazing. I've never tried a climbing one before, but I may have to try that one. I bet your neighbors love you!

Amelia@ Garden Decors said...

Your Eden roses are perfect for this coming summer Cindy. I truly fancy it.

How did it get all the way up your porch door? Did you do it in purpose so that it will follow the arc formation?

Nevertheless, it's still amazing.

Miss Jean said...

I have a climbing rose that I am so disappointed in. It doesn't do well no matter what and is covered in mildew even though i treat it. The bush rose next to it, Julia, is splendid.I think I'll take it out and get one like yours. Thanks for the lovely pictures and inspiration.

Joy said...

Absolutely stunning. Since I read about the Eden roses on your blog a couple of years ago I knew I had to have at least two of them. I cannot find them at any of my local nurseries nor have I found them online. Do you have any suggestions. Help me if you can.
