Everything's Coming Up Roses

 The Iceberg roses are in full bloom, and are they ever glorious this year.

 In fact, I don't ever remember so many blooms!

 Iceberg is my go-to rose because it is such a performer, is disease resistant and comes in every form, from climbing, bush and topiary or standard.

 And the bonus is that they're white, which goes with everything else in the garden.

See what I'm saying?

 A perfect rose.

 In the back yard, climbing New Dawn is just beginning to bloom.

 New Dawn is another favorite, prolific bloomer.

 Somehow this red rose snuck in to my garden!

The rose on the left is French Lace.
It has a wonderful scent!


The Cecile Brunner roses don't bloom much on the "tunnel of love."
Too much shade...


But they go crazy climbing the fence.
If only they bloomed all summer...

The first of many bouquets!


Pin It!

Absolutely gorgeous! I bought an iceberg rose this year and you are so right it is a prolific bloomer. Your garden is so beautiful D! Hapy Thursday,

Stunning display of roses Dolores. We planted climbing roses on our trellis last year and I hope they get down to business and start to climb (and bloom!) I grew up in S. CA and we had lots of roses. The PNW is cooler and, although we are blessed to have lush green forest everywhere, our summer garden is only a few months out of the year.

You have inspired me to find these fabulous white roses and plant a hedge of them along our front walk. They are just what I've been looking for!

I am not familiar with this rose. Do you think it would grow as prolifically in the deep south? Again, loved a tiny peek into your backyard haven.

I love roses and I love white roses especially. I used to have a whole bed of yellow roses at my last house - miss them. Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures.

I have one rose bush that I am hoping to have some roses on this year, it is still cool and raining here in central Missouri. The rain is good for it and its on the east side of my house also which all my flowers do the best

Good Afternoon Delores, It is such a treat to see such beautiful roses as mine have only a few leaves on them, but your roses remind me of what I have to look forward to.
Your garden is so very beautiful and a joy to see.
Best Wishes
Daphne

Love my Cecile Brunner roses and I even have one red one that snuck in somehow! I always love seeing it though! I've never heard of the Iceberg roses! I am looking into that tomorrow! These were all stunning and I'm so glad you shared them with us! Do you happen to know if the Iceberg ones will grow well in the South? I will investigate it as well! Thanks!

So beautiful! I need to plant me a rose! When I was little we had a rosebush someone gave my grandmother and my parents planted it in their garden. It was forever known as "Grandma's Rosebush". To this day, I always wonder if it's still there!

Just fabulous! Gorgeous! Beautiful!

Your photography is amazing...I wish I was there to walk around with you and inhale the scent.

How spectacular! I can only imagine how fragrant it must smell....so beautiful!

I want a 'tunnel of love'! But I certainly don't need another project. Your blog is beautiful and I will have to satisfy my love of roses by visiting often.

Your garden is absolutely amazing! I wish I had a garden so beautiful, but I am not so equipped with a green thumb. I just have to keep trying! I love your tunnel of love and the path on the side of your house, everything looks so lush and gorgeous!

I'm in love with your Iceberg roses. I think I will have to find a spot or two in my garden. My New Dawn roses are just getting ready to burst, and I can't wait. I always love any little peek into your garden. It's so lovely.
