Bloom Thyme: It’s been one of those weeks!

It has been one of those wonderful weeks in the garden. The kind I dream about all winter.

  • The blooms are blooming.
  • I made bokays to take to special friends.
  • We’ve had visitors to the garden.
  • Dinner’s on the patio with Mr G. 😍
  • We’ve had rain but not too much.

Getting back to the blooms, I can’t wait to share some of these with you!

Lady Ashe is amazing this year. Hard to believe that I thought she wasn't going to make it!

Forgot to take a picture of Rosa Mundi but here is her striped beauty in a tiny vase!

The big winner for this week–Celsiana, a one-time blooming damask that will knock your socks off! Take a deep breathe and inhale…

I hope  you are having a fantastic week too!

 Now it’s time for us Indy folks to get our race on.

  1. Your roses are terrific. Mine are off to a terrible start & I pulled one out (Firefighter) & trashed it due to disease. My son bought me the last few bottles of lime sulfur in this area but I am afraid to use it on the roses that are at this time developing black spot. Good luck , Joe

      1. I am in zone 7 central Maryland. I have 24 rose bushes & those least affected are David Austens . This is the earliest that black spot has been a severe problem & spraying was not effective due to the wet mo. this May. Thank you , Joe

  2. Your garden is always an inspiration. Your blooms start before mine here in north east WA. What would you do with an enormous Charles de Mills that is literally covered with buds, but developing a bad case of powdery mildew. I don’t like to use chemicals, but if that’s the only way….. We’ve had a wet couple weeks.
