Lion’s Fairy Tale

We  have been enjoying the special spot where we can watch our roses growing together in the area outside the kitchen door. Lion’s Fairy Tale has pink and creamy shades with an apricot center.


I don’t know why this is an Alchemist, but I love the pink and yellow blossoms.

Poet’s Wife

This shrub has many blossoms, but they  don’t always hold up their heads. There are many blossoms and I enjoy the changes of  color.


Zaide offers many big rich pink blossoms. I love this color.

Brother Cadfael

The Brother Cadfael  is very tall, and has delicate shades of pink. I really enjoy the shades of these flowers.

Drift Peach

This is a wonderful flower.  And this is how I was told it lived – “Peach Drift® is one of the most floriferous dwarf shrubs available. Soft peach blooms cover the plant from mid-spring to the first hard freeze of late fall. Peach Drift® pairs well with existing perennials in any landscape and exhibits strong disease resistance.”  I agree with this whole heartedly.

There are more beautiful flowers in the garden, but they are all moving and I cannot catch them. I’m sure there will be more views.

    These are so beautiful, Pat! I’ve really been enjoying my roses this spring too. David Austin’s Sceptered Isle, Olivia Rose Austin, and Bathsheba, among others. How do you handle the inevitable black spot?

  2. You have some beautiful Roses, Pat! The names are fun, too. Mine have been very happy with the weather this spring, as well. They’re definitely a highlight of the June garden. 🙂

    Beth – I have trouble getting with the reply from you – and others. You are one of my favorite gardeners.

    Brooke – I am late with this. Problems with the machine. I’m glad we can all enjoy our roses. I cannot say I always know the exact names, but I carry on.
