A Tour of My Garden

Here are some random shots I have taken recently after some spring cleaning.

                     This shot was taken of approximately the center of my long raised bed in back. When things are  more in bloom, I will take another shot to document its transition.
This next photo shows the left side/end of the same bed.

New Dawn Rose is in the teuter far center, with purple Iris just behind.


  1. Your bed looks so wonderful. Things are really filling in now. The irises are lovely and the clematis too. The clematis really adds a pop to the bed.

  2. Thanks hocking hills. This is only the second season of bloom for that clematis. it only hand a handfull last yr. this yr its gorgeous.

  3. I just went with a Madame Alfred Carriere Rose to climb up my back house wall, but New Dawn was a close second. I'm looking forward to seeing it in a little bit to check it out.

    Your raised beds are something else!

  4. Thanks Jess. I also have a Hadame Isaac Pierre that I love. But she is a rambler. If memory serves me it looks similar to yours, and it smells like heaven.
