My antique roses are so fun to watch grow...they are loving the sunshine and the warmth of the Florida May weather.
They have been a little neglected, though, and need another shot of Milorganite (ahem...literally CRAP from the good folks of Milwaukee) and epsom salts to give them a little boost.
And I have a little black spot going on there too. Not sure how to handle that...
Anyhow...enjoy the pics of them (and some other ones I have randomly added, too)!
|Mrs. B.R. Cant (an antique rose, purchased from Rose Petals Nursery in April)|
|Clotilde Soupert, Cl. I planted this about six weeks ago.|
|My second Clotilde. She isn't thriving as much as the one planted on the west side of the house.|
|A day or so ago, she was partially closed... now the Clotilde is fully open!!!|
|My Hoya is blooming. This almost never happens!|
|I stuck a sprig of this moss rose in the ground lass fall...and NOW look at it!|
|Mme. Joseph Schwartz, antique Rose|
|Mme. Joseph Schwartz. I planted this as a baby about the end of March...|
|This Peggy Martin was a sadder specimen...it required a little more TLC when she came to me. But darn it...she is known as the Katrina Rose , so if a hurricane can't kill her, NEITHER CAN I!!!!|
|Look at that shoot on the Louis Phillipe!|
|General Schablikine. Lots of green, only one bloom.|
|That's Bouganvilla at the bottom of that trellis. It was all killed off over the winter...and we are starting all over again. |
And here is Maggie, today, before school:
|My entryway plants...some friends gave me that hanging basket planter and it is my FAVORITE PLANTER EVER. I just planted new flowers in it...they haven't done much yet. :-/ Perhaps in the next set of pics, right? |
|Sambac Jasmine, begonia (I think!), and my windchime|
|Sambac Jasmine is blooming!|
|Baby Souvenir de la Malmaison, and a new cool trellis I bought this past week.!|
