GARDEN BLOGGERS' BLOOM DAY
This Civil war era rose has been passed down from generation to generation. If only it could talk what tales it would tell.
Much like England where even the simpliest of cottages have roses, so Southern gardens are seldom without them. The old fashioned roses that once filled Southern gardens are difficult, if not impossible , to find. But the good news is that new, improved varieites are now available, many of which are disease and mildew resistance and repeat bloomers .
Meanwhile in my little deck container garden the flowers are in full , glorious bloom. I planted flowers that were attractive to hummers -lantana, petunias, geraniums and mandevillas and they came. I have my camera at ready in an attempt to snap a picture but haven't succeeded so far.
Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens to see what's blooming across this great country.
