    Strange isn't it we have had a really good season this year so many things have been better than ever. What you have looks beautiful though.

    Stunning rose! Does it have scent as well?

    I want to say no because I've never noticed it. The roses themselves are pretty small. My Mother grows roses, hers are larger blooms, less plentiful, but extremely fragrant. Mine really is just a rescue bush that took off!

    I gave them a whiff when I got home, they have fragrance but not very strong. Is that a breed thing or a conditions thing?

    Beautiful flowers, everyone!!!! StephanieLynn- your foxglove is gorgeous!!!! We moved into a new house less than a year ago and I really missed my gardens. I've just started planting and I'm in love with this Limelight standard hydrangea. It's a work in progress!!

    Oh, and photos are done with my favorite new "fun" lens-so items are intentionally blurred. P6141028.jpg P6141016.jpg P6131005.jpg P6070968.jpg

    @StephanieLynn apps looks stunning lovely rose and I love the planting in the stone container. It isn't pink though?!

    @pinkjewel I am loving the artful blurring youbcertainly seem to have made an amazing start. Was it a blank canvass?

    @pinkjewel, thank you for your sweet comment, I just planted that foxglove so I'm hoping it takes! Your gardens are beautiful as is your photography.

    @meely, I definitely need a pink planter in my life, a pink jewel encrusted one!

    meely- thanks! Pretty much blank. We have a small yard and all we had was turf, then a steep bank, woods, then golf course. So we had boulders brought in for the bank and added plants down the slope. I then had the landscapers add a small stacked stone retaining wall so I could basically have a raised bed to add the perennials. Now I love to look out the back windows!! Right now I have a lot of annual, too until the perennials get more established. One of my favorite plants is the funny, shrubby mint, nicknamed "kitty crack". Supposedly it is like catmint on steroids- not sure since I don't have a cat. It does have an interesting scent. P5240902.jpg
    I added mints to the garden as they are supposed to deter deer. Not sure it works as the day after I planted my roses the deer came and ate every single flower and bud-lol

    Your foxglove looks like it's very happy!
