May Garden Journal

Hello everyone,
Wow!!! What a month. I didn't plan a blogging break, but
life happens.  The last post was at the end of April.
My garden was in full bloom.  The first week of May
I left on vacation with my daughter, sister, and niece.
I visited North and South Carolina for the first time.
I have a bucket list, and I checked off another adventure. 
My daughter, sister, and I visited the 
"Biltmore Estate"
Travel photos will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
But now back to the blooming garden.
Before I left on vacation, I took some photos
of our garden in the evening. 
Peony and Roses are a great favorite of gardeners. 
My roses only last a month and here is a sample of some of the beautiful blooms. 
Peonies, Red and Yellow roses with a praying angel.
"Sally Holmes" a white climber and a pink climbing miniature.
I love my Angels.
Candy Cane climber, White Eden, and Ingrid Bergman 
I had a fabulous vacation, but it is nice to be home.
I came home on Mother's Day, and the following week 
new carpeting was installed in our living room and 
master bedroom. That is a whole other story.  
Busy, busy, busy.
Thank you for visiting 
Joyously,
Betty

  2. What a lovely flower garden you have.......looks like pics from Better Homes and gardens. Loved your pretty collage.
    Also liked all your angels....my fav was the blue one witht he white roses almost wrapping around her.
    I am a rose lover too.........well, I love almost any flower really..........they are all gorgeous.
    Enjoy your garden and glad you had a nice trip. My daughter used to live in Asheville N.C. up until last Sept. and now she lives in Charleston S.C.
    So we are familiar with where you traveled.....very pretty places.
    Blessings,
    Nellie

    1. Thank you for your comment. Yes, we loved our visit to Asheville N.C. and then we spent two days in Charleston, S.C. I love the south.

  3. As a fellow rose nut, I love this post. Coincidentally, a friend is just now sending me a rooted cutting of "Sally Holmes"! I can't wait. Why do you r roses only bloom for a month? Are the OGRs?

    1. I love Sally Holmes. My roses bloom in May for what I call the "Big Bloom" Every rose bush blooms in the garden at once. I dead head the roses and fertilize them. During our very hot summer the roses bloom slowly. I keep the roses clean and in the fall when the weather cools down. The roses will bloom again. My climbing "New Dawn" only blooms once a year in May. Have fun in your garden.
      Joyously

  4. Your roses are gorgeous! Do you have any tips for nurturing them so they bloom like that? Saw worms attacked our roses before we could identify it and left skeletonized leaves...not a pretty look. We live in zone 5. North Carolina would be a lovely vacation spot. It's been years since we were in South Carolina. Charleston is a beautiful and interesting city.

  5. Gorgeous!! Wow your garden is WAY ahead of mine! I have buds on one peony, the others are only in their second year so no buds yet, sad. I lost a climbing rose, which makes me sad....but the others are all fine. Lilacs are still blooming here!
