May 8, 2015, posted by Gina – I am a member of a wonderful garden club that meets once a month August through May. Throughout the year we have knowledgeable and interesting speakers who educate us about everything from gardening to flower arranging. Our year end meeting is always at the home of a member who has a spectacular garden and the garden this year was beyond amazing. Sadly, I was so busy talking that I only took two photos but I did have a good time!
The New Dawn Roses you see above were picture perfect. They are repeat bloomers and have a slight fragrance. The soft pink petals cascading over the fence make a very beautiful display. I am about to have a trellis built in my yard and had not selected the roses for it but after seeing these, I am sold.
The garden path is lined with irises and a small basket of flowers hangs cheerily on the gate. I have never thought using irises along a pathway but after seeing this I am going to implement it somewhere in my own garden. Everything in this garden was so welcoming and creative. I promise next year I will arrive early and take photos before I start talking with everyone. Happy Gardening!
