South Africa Rose - today

Sooooo gorgeous!!!!

South Africa Rose

One of my favorites! This rose is from Palatine Roses in Canada. It's one of the most beautiful roses you can imagine. Not fragrant, but it is absolutely a gorgeous plant. I would say in my opinion is a perfect rose bush. The leaves are nice and shinny, they fill out well, and the rose is just an amazing deep yellow. From bud to fully open the rose is gorgeous. I almost lost this plant so I planted a new one this year just in case. (Voles happened to my garden ! horrible creatures!)

The Veggie Garden

View from the deck.

All raised beds! Love it!

Tomatoes, beans (can't see them yet!) and Summer Squash

Potatoes and lettuce

Collard Grenns ... whatever is left after the bugs eat them... it's horrible the amount of damage they can do in a morning! hate those things!

Zaide Rose

This Rose is in the 2nd year in my garden. It was planted last year and it did not bloom much but it was a strong plant. This year is great. Grew a lot, and the roses are really a nice pink/coral color. It's from Palatine Roses (in Canada) love it... I am glad I got it, even if I was not so excited about , but it promisses to be as good as the fairy tales ones, with long canes and tons of blooms... Love it...
