Other than the howling wind the last two days, not much was accomplished outside. This morning I had to remove a rose that didn't survive our winter and planted a new one. I borrowed this picture of one from a garden center, since I'm too lazy to look through my pictures right now.
It's called Paradise, planted in memory of Wally. Someday I'll plant the other kind again now that I know the correct way to plant full size roses. My miniatures are much easier to plant and keep alive.
From the Weeks Rose catalog:
Medium lavender brushed ruby. Hybrid Tea Lavender roses were no Utopia until this heavenly rose came along. The exceptional colors of clean lavender with ruby-red edgings and the consistent spiraled flower-form can fill you with rapture. But true bliss cannot be achieved until you witness the abundance of large blooms and dark green disease-resistant foliage on each vigorous easy-to-grow plant.
Bloom/Size: Large, double
Petal Count: 25 to 30
Fragrance: Moderate fruity
Parentage: Swarthmore x Angel Face seedling
Comments: Heat brings out the blush color but can burn the foliage"
Not much happening around here except cleaning and sorting and taking loads of things to the local Good Will, now that we have one in Fort Morgan. I gave away a big bag of shirts and kept some to cut up into quilt blocks-one set from the pastels and the other from all the western shirts. Both quilts will be someday projects.
Doing some wedding work but must do more! ♥♫
