Rose and Garden Tour 2014

"The Garden of Angels"

Hello everyone,
Our property is eight-tenths of a acre. The front yard is low maintenance with Camellia Japonica, Hydrangea and Camellia Sasanqua 'Yuletide' and a large Maple tree.
This is the sign that greeted our visitors as they entered our garden.
 The front porch was bedecked with a beautiful potted plant I bought at Home Depot.

 Flowering Pear and Raywood Ash trees line the driveway. Walking under an arbor covered with a 'New Dawn' climbing rose brings visitors into "The Garden of Angels" with a view of different entertaining spaces.
The kitchen area is for cooking and canning. An enclosed patio provides a place for shade loving plants and a fern grotto. The seating area is for conversation on warm summer evenings and watching TV.
A fragrant circular rose garden is surrounded with potted herbs and a Dutchman's Pipevine leads to the hand built pergola.
 The pergola provides a place for tea time or evening dining and is surrounded by lavender, roses perennials and annuals.

 Other benches are placed along the path under an old shade tree.
Sally Holmes rose and purple lupins
The large lawn area is bordered by a curved English cottage style garden with decorative statues, perennials, several types of roses and shrubs providing color spring, summer and fall.
 An additional park bench sits under a flowering plum tree.
 Growing along the fence are grape vines, and a plot where a summer vegetable garden is planted. One olive tree provides the best cured green olives. Behind the garage is a small area for potting plants and storing extra garden supplies. The vendors were in the back of the property selling mosaic garden decor, bird houses and wind chimes.
The rose society sold a 100 miniature rose along the side of the garage.
 The cupids got dressed up with some sweet white Alyssum and Graham Thomas my David Austin rose bloomed profusely.
Ingrid Bergman, Simplicity, St Patrick, Dream Weaver, Tiffany and my peonies were showing off at their best. I just  planted strawberries and  Bat Face Cuphea in the front part of this bed.
Summer Kiss and my Butterfly Bush are doing wonderful.
 This is a great Gardening year.
"Gardening is a journey-always changing and always so rewarding.
This is one the of the beautiful bouquets that were sitting on tables.
 I have so many photos I just couldn't put them in one post.
 This is Garden Party  and a Thompson Seedless Grape vine in the pergola area
 A vendor with metal garden are work was very popular.
What an amazing day for me. It was a dream come true. 
Hope you enjoyed your tour and please come back soon.
I have more to show you.♥
