The roses are a live with blooms, buds and greenery. The Hollyhock and Day lily's are green and thriving. After our long, long dry summer we have been blessed with an abundant amount of rain so that the plants that survived our extended freeze are growing like a house afire!
I am a pink rose lover and all the roses I have planted in this side of the yard are all shades of pink. I have Belinda's Dream, First Prize, Cecil Brunner and I just planted a Perfume Delight this Spring
I have large pots on each side of the patio that I have planted small white daisies, shades of pink petunias and another plant that is lavender, don't know it's name but I liked it when I saw it.
My climbing rose in the picture just above is called Social climber and it literally must have about 100 blooms on it. I get a lot of sun on this side of my house and the roses have really thrived in this area. Also the Hollyhocks are sun lovers so they, too, have pushed skyward.
Things have been very busy here. Trying to get refinancing done, which closed today. Still working and getting some health issues settled. being so busy has been a good thing as it has made these last few weeks fly by. May 5th is looking closer and closer.
I haven't heard from my carpenter yet but I've been going through my old magazines looking for ideas to incorporate into the room. I'm definitely going shabby chic but still haven't settled on a definite color. I keep coming back to my pink roses and pale blue but nothing is definite yet. I'm getting anxious to get started...it is hard to be patient.
