Garden Life

I've been outside toiling in the sun again, but there are compensations. Roses love the hot summer days.

Another mid-year delight, Graham Thomas, one of the David Austin roses. Lovely on the bush or in vase, a prolific bloomers with a very light fresh fragrance.

On the other end of the spectrum. This is a close up of the rosa Don Juan. It's really too sunny to capture colors well--in real life the blooms are dark almost black at the edges red, It has the most intense perfume of all the roses I grow.
