A Rose is a Rose And Giveaway Winner!

I'm pleased to announce that the winner of my Grow Your Blog party giveaway is Maggie of The Mag Rag. Congratulations, Maggie! I'll be emailing you for information on where to send your Starbucks gift card.

It's still winter here in the midwest, but I do have lots of pretty garden pictures on my hard drive. I recently re-visited this post from last summer, and thought you might enjoy it as much as I did.

If only the smell could come through the computer screen....  :)

 The roses have been simply spectacular the past week. They like the cool weather we've been experiencing.

The rose garden is one of the first gardens planted when we moved to our home 23 years ago. It's by the front porch. At that time, I didn't label plants so I do not know the name of most of these.

 'Double Delight'

 Buck rose 'Carefree Beauty' - in the cottage garden

 Also in the cottage garden - not sure what this rose is but it too is pretty.

Also wanted to share my martagon lily...planted 2 or 3 falls ago, finally making a spectacular appearance; this is its first time to bloom.

Still hanging around, Baltimore orioles eating a 32 oz jar of grape jelly every week...I'm happy to provide this for them as I so enjoy seeing them. I also have catbirds and robins eating the jelly.

Have a great weekend and for the fathers out there, Happy Father's Day!

Added later:  WHOOPS!!! Guess you can tell this is a repost from June!!!  lol
