Summer Solstice Garden Tour Video

Just a few hours ago I did another Periscope broadcast about some plants (mainly roses) in our backyard. I am featuring my Hybrid Perpetual Bed with two lovely chartreuse colored plants, a coleus and a heuchera. Then I move on to gardenia 'Veitchii', the Tea Rose 'Georgetown Tea', the Tea Noisette 'Madame Alfred Carriere' and 'Belinda's Dream'. Lastly I show you the Hybrid Tea rose 'Moonstone'. The latter is blooming incredible today! Maybe you would like to have a peek into my garden on this hot summer solstice day!

You can watch the broadcast on Periscope 24 hours after it was taken. My Periscope/Twitter username is csgardendreams.

The video is also on YouTube, just click here:

Wishing you all a beautiful beginning of summer!

See you in the garden!



  1. Tienes unas rosas preciosas. Feliz verano.

  2. Beautiful! Your roses always make me so jealous.

  3. I enjoyed the tour. Moonstone is wonderful; It has certainly made a terrific recovery! I also love the lime color of the heuchera and the coleus.

  4. Cette visite est merveilleuse..j'ai découvert les beautés de ton jardin, les roses bien sûr mais cette belle heuchère est dotée d'un feuillage ravissant. Elle est d'une fraîcheur exquise. Tes roses sont toujours aussi belles même sous 31° degrés, elles restent pimpantes. La chaleur revient dans ma région, aujourd'hui nous aurons 30°....
    Belle journée

  5. Happy summer solstice to you, Christina! Your garden is looking good despite the recent blast of heat.
