Well the mulch has all been spread all but a few
spots where I am adding some new roses.
It is hard on the old back but the beds always look
so much better after a new coating of mulch.
One of the new roses I added to the new rose garden
is called ‘Easy Does It’.
It was newly introduced this year and was an AARS
The color is so mixed in the blooms that it is hard
to exactly say what color it really is. It has an mango orange,
peach pink, and honey apricot swirl of colors in the bloom.
I have decided that I really like it a lot. All the wet weather
we are having may be turning some of the leaves yellow in the
middle but for its first season it looks really pretty.
The blooms are about 3 1/2 inches and is disease
resistant. The bush gets from 3 to 4 feet in height.
Blooms from early to late summer.
Good from zones 5 to 9.
The leaves are glossy green and the blooms are suppose
to be fragrant but to tell the truth I do not smell very much
if any of a scent.
My favorite rose, Crimson Bouquet is still blooming its
heart out and when they say this one is fragrant they are
really speaking the truth.
A new pink lily is blooming in the lily bed in the woodland
bed. I like it better tan the bright orange ones.
The shady middle bed is looking much better with the
new mulch and it is really starting to fill in now.
Doesn’t the sign look pretty here Tootsie?
Heuchera ‘Purple Palace’ has not bloomed yet in it.
And Heuchera ‘Amethyst Mist’ is new this year.
I like the silver highlights to its burgundy leaves.
Darla it is just not the hummingbirds that like the
mini feeder. Since no Orioles showed up the
hummingbirds are enjoying the orange fruity flavor
of the nectar and so are the butterflies.
Happy Gardening Everyone,
