Open Garden Day Reminder

This is a reminder, so you don't forget that this year's Open Garden Day is Saturday, June 7, from 10am to 4pm.

'American Pillar' is in full bloom across the fence and WAY up into that cedar tree.  A photo doesn't do it justice ... you have to stand there and see it in person to comprehend the size and spectacle of this rose.

For the past two days, I have been working in the front yard, weeding the roses in the final bed in the hybrid tea garden and filling holes where roses have died with replacements from the pot ghetto.  Making great progress!


During ... it will be a while till I can get a true 'After' photo.

I feel really good about showing off the garden this year.  It's still a horrible embarrassment in some places, but it's better than it was last year.  The mess and weeds don't stop me from welcoming folks to the garden.  With all the roses to see and smell, who cares about the weeds.


  1. Yes your American Pillar looks stunning. This is definitely the best time of the year with roses flowering all over the place. Let's enjoy it fully, weeding comes later.

  2. Who cares about the weeds! Love that! LOL! Just smell the roses..... You have an awful lot to keep up with... whats a weed here and there? I hope you have a wonderful event....This house came with a bunch of daylilies and there can be quite a lot of upkeep with them to keep them looking their best... i try to mess around in the garden a little bit each day.....keep after the weeds...don't let them go to seed...goes a long way..... Hugs! deb
