Early Spring Roses

As promised earlier I have posted some of our early roses in our Spring garden. The roses which always show themselves first are the Climbing Roses, such as Lorraine Lee as seen in the first pic, followed by Zephrine Druin, then Dublin Bay, Pierre deRonsard, Cecile Brunner and finally Crepiscule (not quite out as yet).
This pic shows just how full and wild the garden is - there are
Grannies Bonnets, Lavenders, Foxgloves, a Lemon tree, Valarian and Orange Blossom.
A David Austin rose here, I think called Jude the Obscure (what an amazing name!)
And finally here is a mosaic I made to show the garden as it is at present but, as you know, gardens are continually growing and changing so the next garden post will display many more roses for your enjoyment!
Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. What a glorious scene your garden must be Suzy.The scent must be heavenly.I love the "wilder" Cottage Garden style. These type of gardens are always a delight as things pop up that have been dormant during Winter, have self seeded elsewhere in the garden, new things get blown in by the wind. ....Always a surprise.
    Hope you are having a lovely relaxing weekend.
    I'm up to my elbows in clowns.Hmmm!!!

  2. All I can say is "oh my" ... how very beautiful! You are so lucky to have spring again and all these lovely roses.
    Have a great weekend,
    Best wishes,

  3. Suzi your garden must be your inspiration. All those beautiful roses. When I moved here I planted roses and more roses, but when I saw Queen Elizabeth being eaten for the fourth time by the deer I had to give up. LOL Someday...
    Thanks for your sweet note I am slowly recovering from the flu shot. It made me very ill and so stiff in the neck and arm. Headaches and pain. Never again. They say this is a tough shot this year and lots are ill from it. Wish I had known that before. Oh well lesson learned. Have a great weekend and I truly love your garden! Hugs, Sharon

  4. Oh, oh, oh! Be still my beating heart! What a beautiful grand garden Suzi! I planted a climbing rose two years ago, moved it once, and finally this fall rmoved it completely as it just wouldn't do anything. My other roses do fine I planted mine by a cute old shed I have and wanted it to look like yours does, but this baby just didn't want to do a thing. . :-)

  5. Are these blooming in your garden now? I guess it's spring on the other side of the globe. Here in PA, it's near the tail-end of fall...
    Well, your roses are gorgeous no matter the season!
    Hugs, Diane

  6. Oh Suzi, I now see where all your great richness comes from in your work. With a garden like yours, each glimpse is a delight and beauty comes from every corner, seen and unseen, even in the little hidden pockets. What a splendid Spring display. Thanks for sharing. xox Corrine

  7. Thanks for the garden view! I'm glad now that my pictures wouldn't load to my blog. I would have been embarrassed. Of course, we are starting fall here and my roses are tired. They look lots better in the spring. I love your cottage garden. Has a tendency to keep the weeds down, too, doesn't it. Thank you for the offer to help get my pics on. I'll take you up on that, please. <3 Terri

  8. It makes me really happy to be able to share all of this Spring splendour! I have to say it really is a beautiful garden especially this time of year but, at the same time, it requires an immense amount of work at different times but Jeff and I get heaps of pleasure in getting our green hands dirty to achieve these results.
    Not to mention the abundance from the vegi and fruit garden also.
    Thanks heaps for your lovely comments - they are appreciated! Suzy

  9. I'm so happy to be able to see your beautiful garden as we decend into a cold autumn & winter. Of course, some treat this time of year over in the UK as the start of it all!

  10. Oh, I just love your gorgeous roses! After gardening for 35 years in shade, I finally have a wee bit of garden that gets sun, and I've planted roses. The scent is glorious. Now I'm pining for spring......

  11. hi all, I am in the development of finalizing my grc meaningful beauty buying. I've gone through various portals and eventuallythis [url=]meaningful beauty[/url] site looks worth trusting. Any member here have any experience doing business with them?
    Thanks everyone for reading.


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
