    Roses Galore

    "A black cat among roses,
    phlox, lilac-misted under a quarter moon,
    the sweet smells of heliotrope
    and night-scented stock.
    The garden is very still. It is dazed with moonlight,
    contented with perfume..."
    ~Amy Lowell

    Magenta knock-out roses in shades of vivid magenta to pale pink as they go through their bloom cycle.

    Abundant knock-out roses... insane, instant full-bloom.

    More knock-outs, planted last year.

    Reine des violettes, a lavender, thornless, lanky rose with a fascinating petal structure.

    Mister Lincoln, a luscious, barn red rose planted in 1999 at our old house, transplanted when we moved here. The bokeh balls in the purple plum tree were a surprise.

    I've lost the name of this rose, it could be a Chrysler Imperial.

    Mister Lincoln against a blanket of magenta knock-outs.

    Wasn't it weeks ago we had days of snow and ice? This land called Texas is full of surprises.

    Be still my heart!!! We're such a long way from roses here in Northern Jersey. Our forsythia is still in bloom, as well as the magnolias. Thank you for these gorgeous pictures. You've made my day! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    Oh, how lovely.

    All we have are daffodils and forsythia and dandelions. Tulips are just beginning to bud.

    one great thing about texas is the early growing season! i really miss the dallas arboretum - we lived close by, so i used to go there quite a bit. these photos remind me of the gorgeous roses that grow there!
