It is 50ish but feels 45.
I freely admit my objectivity is in short supply when it comes to my garden. Naturally, I assume everyone is on pins and needles waiting to hear the latest developments.
Three days of cold rain did in what was left of my peonies and my "big pink rose" bush is sodden to the roots. Lucky I took some pics before the deluge.
|Zepherine Drouhin, aka, the big pink rose bush. Apart from it's tendency to get really big, this is a near perfect rose. Thornless, doesn't seem possible but it's true, a prolific bloomer, very fragrant.|
|Ok, maybe the foliage could be a tad darker. Nothing is perfect. It is a beautiful pink though.|
|This one is called Tamora, beautiful color and fragrance. Thorns but not dangerously so. Fragrant.|
My white rambler, Ilse Krohn, launched a growth spurt this year. Those copper spikes are 8' tall.

|Good fragrance, creamy white buds, dark foliage. a few thorns but nothing your leather gloves can't protect you from.|

|Just about every garden in New England has a "Fairy Rose" bush. It is just starting to bloom.|
