If you leave a comment here by midnight tonight you have a chance to win a copy of The Roses at the End of the Road. So much easier to read about someone else’s garden adventures than weeding your own garden on a hot summer afternoon. For more information about the book and the many ways to purchase it click here
I planted Mrs. Anthony Waterer, a beautiful rugosa last year and this is the first time it has bloomed. What a beautiful color. And fragrance! The deer have been nibbling at the garden, including on the Rose Walk, but I hope they will spare the few new blossoms on Mrs. Anthony Waterer.
Mount Blanc is probably my favorite while rugosa. Very hardy and deliciously fragrant. It will be beautiful next Sunday when we celebrate all the roses at the end of the road at the Annual Rose Viewing. Will you attend?
