Bloom Thyme Friday: This week in the garden…

Here in my world the temps are lower than normal and that makes for some wonderful garden thyme! The garden is looking more like spring than fall this week as the roses are coming back to bloom! Know that I am totally in denial about the leaves on the trees that are beginning to change color and the cicadas that are singing!

Here are some of my pretties…

About Teresa /

I know that to everything there is a season, but I’m a gardener and I start counting the days until spring the day after Christmas. Gardeners, we are in good company ... Genesis 2:8. I love roses and get completely giddy when it is time for my historical roses to bloom in early June. I live and grow in Zone 5b where I take care of my 175+ roses and their companions. I also co host the Rose Chat Podcast. Check us out @ Follow my garden experiences @

    beautiful flowers, my new dawn is blooming alot again, and my new rose has a yellow bloom, (golden gates) so I know they sent me the right rose this time, my red morning glories are blooming but my others are still growing alot but no buds, not sure if i will get empty plants again this year. good you are enjoying your garden, I never get tired of looking at my plants either, my red crape myrtle is blooming and when I get a good picture of it I will post it.

  4. My butterfly bushes thrive and I now have butterfly’s that spend long periods in the garden…roses have been a struggle. I love their visual appeal and the scent is wonderful, they are a really worthwhile struggle for me. Your photos are such an inspiration.

  5. What beautiful roses! I particularly like ‘Francis Meilland’. I have struggled to establish my roses and hope I will do better next year.

If you have a minute, leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
