A small garden in the English style, set in the wilds of the northern Sonora Desert...
You combine simple snippets so well! And that rose has a vaguely lotus-like look to it. Beautiful!
Yes, I love the shape of that rose, and it combines so well both in a vase and the garden! Thanks so much, Loree!
That rose never ceases to amaze me! It looks great with the Hamelia blooms too.
That's just a fantastic rose, I think :) It gets more shade than any of my others, but it also gets less water. And I think it's heading for 6 ft tall now...
Hamelia is new to me Amy. Vey pretty with your lovely rose!
Hamelia is new to me, too! It's a tropical that has apparently been moving gradually into gardens across the mild winter areas of the US - making friends as it goes since it is really a wonderful plant! It's so strange to realize how many plant types have only been introduced here in the last 25 years or so, and new ones coming in just now...!
Oops - I missed this. Sorry Amy - I am usually so diligent about following up IOVOM! The lavender and hamelia are a great combination with their similar appearance and I always like to see that particular rose of yours - a most successful vase all round, despite its simplicity
