Most things in life start small and in a humble way, which is definitively true for my blog but also for my new roses. Since two years ago I order most roses for my garden from specialty nurseries and they arrive own root as bands as you can see on the photos.
For this year I got from Heirloom Roses Crocus Rose, Charles Darwin, Jude the Obscure, White Meidiland
as well as Herbie, Jilly Jewel, Lavender Jewel, Overnight Scentsation, and Moonlight Scentsation.
William Shakespeare 2000 and Charles Darwin came from Chamblee's Rose Nursery.
Sweet Chariot, Baronne Edmund de Rothschild, Mme. Caroline Testout and a mystery (mislabeled rose that they sent with your order for free) were received from Rogue Valley Roses.
As a very special gift I got Wedding Cake (on the left) from a dear Rosarian friend as a Christmas present. Wedding Cake is a rose that I was unable to obtain for years and I am so happy that I have it now in my rose collection. My second rose present was Lavender Crystal on the right.
I hope you watch these babies growing together with me.
Happy New Year to everyone!
See you in the garden!
