Look who’s coming to join my rose family, Sunshine Daydream!
Star Roses and Plants introduced this grandiflora beauty a couple years back and I am excited to introduce five of them to my garden this year. I think they’re going to look just perfect next to some lovely bell flowers I have!
Note: Just heard from Matthias Meilland on Facebook who told me that this rose has won 13 Awards, including an AARS. 💛🌟💛
Star is very serious about regional testing and this rose has been scoring high points for excellent disease resistance all over the country! For more details… read on.
While my favorite color of rose is pink (I know you are shocked.), yellow comes in second!
Look at the dreamy picture below. Yes, this rose looks to be one that dreams are made of and won’t it look so pretty in bokays this summer.
There are several more new ones joining my rose family … so stay tuned.
What new plants are you introducing?
I am honored to have my garden featured in the March /April edition of the American Rose Magazine. Seriously, this is an absolutely gorgeous magazine filled to the brim with beautiful roses, rose stories and rose information! American Rose is a benefit of membership (trial memberships are only $10) to the American Rose Society.
If you are not a member, you didn’t get to see the article so here it is. BUT, before you look, know 2 things … all the pictures were taken by me with my iPhone and the garden doesn’t look like this everyday. LOL I was just walking around in the garden a few minutes ago and I can tell you for certain … she is ready to get going again! Bring it on!
So, here you go… A Gardener and Her Tidy Mess (that’s me!)
Last week when I left home for the Biltmore, there was not very much going on in the garden. (A post about the incredible Biltmore Rose Trials is coming very soon!)
Back to the garden… Something changed while I was gone. Rain. Lots of rain. The rain came and things started blooming! You can water and water and water but nothing is like a good soaking rain.
Caution... excessive garden pictures to follow...

Some of them were ready to come inside! 🙂
I am enjoying every single one of them! It’s gonna be hard to say goodbye for the winter. You are going to have to help me through it!
Wishing you a wonderful day and a warm welcome wherever you go!
