  9. Everything looks so beautiful Jo. I'm so jealous. I was just looking at my photos from last year and on April 29th my crab apple tree was all leafed out and FULL of flowers. That won't be the case this year...it barely has buds on it right now.

    Hope you're having a wonderful week and Happy Easter :)

  15. Happy Easter! I do so love your David Austin roses. I just don't have the luck with them, you make me want to try again. I put in a couple of knock out roses last year....I don't think I get enough sun. I enjoy your photos and gardens so much.
    Hugs,

  16. Wow I love how the dusty miller looks with the pink roses. Looks like your dusty miller is a perennial. It dies off in Boston so each year you have to start over, so I usually pass it over. But this combination looks dreamy!

  17. Hi Jo....are the purple flowering bushes Walker's Low? I have them, they aren't nearly as big as yours, but quite close -

    beautiful rose bush - that is one thing I really don't have enough of here....

    have a blessed Easter

  18. Secret Garden indeed! Oh, how I wish I could plant roses. Unfortunately the deer run rampant here and have a voracious appetite for roses. Could the purple flowers be catmint?

  19. What gorgeous pictures of your roses and the Dusty Miller brought back memories. My Mom always planted them around her roses.

  22. (BIG SIGH.....)

    I'm in love with your roses, Jo! You sure know how to grow them, girlie! lol! I'm still amazed how healthy and bug-free all of your plants look! You've got quite the green thumb!

    Have a blessed Easter, my friend!

  23. I love to virtually visit your beautiful roses. Your pictures are fantastic, especially that first one! I *love* looking through my DA roses catalog. Every single rose bush I have have planted hasn't survived, so I am a terrible rose gardener.. something I intend to fix. ;) I would not be able to stop smelling the roses all day & envisioning cut bouquets if I had your gardening talent!! Have a wonderful Easter!!
