A Walk Through My Rose Garden in Early May

Roses Close-Up


These are two of my favorite rose colors. See more photos of these and roses of other colors on my earlier post, Roses Are Not Just Red.

I like these roses so much I've even made greeting cards featuring them. You can get them at Zazzle and keep them handy. You never know when you might need to use one. 


Mom Planted this Rose Garden


I inherited it. No other flower is planted in the back yard. Mom planted no roses in the front yard. I've always wondered why she wanted to keep all the beauty in back where only family and friends could see it.

When she died and I inherited the house, I was depressed. It was early March. The roses were dormant. By April the roses were blooming again and I was sorry that Mom couldn't enjoy them anymore. They helped cheer me up, though.

They are always in bloom on Mother's Day, and they remind me of her. She never had a rose garden before she moved to Paso Robles. Maybe a few rose bushes, but no rose garden.

A Brief Walk Through the Rose Garden


Along the fence beside the street, one sees this view. It's the most unruly part of the rose garden. The gardener never really gets it under control.

As you will see, Mom's favorite rose was the small Cecile Brunner climbing rose. It would like to overwhelm and cover up all the other roses. You can see what's left of a chard I planted in front of the roses, too. It's bolting.

The view below is what you see if you go to the corner past the last rose bush on the right of the photo above. I am looking back at the corner where the back and side fence meet behind the tree.

In the middle of the garden, to the left of the photo above, you see more climbing roses. These have taken advantage of a pine tree that died and used it as a trellis.

Here's a closer look at the pine tree and the roses around it. This is also the southeast corner of the rose garden.

The photo below shows the view in front of the photo above, along the south side of the fence.

Below is the last rose bush in the garden. It's along the south fence closest to the house.

Do you have roses in your garden? Which of my roses do you like best? I'd love to have you leave a comment.
