Roses in Glen Park

This week the roses busted out!  Wow!   Five rose bushes in the perennial garden are starting or are well into their first flush of the year. 



We went heavy for pink and white with blue and purple highlights.  Very girly but beautiful when highlighted with silvers and grays.


David Austin's Rosa 'Olivia Rose Austin'

 Rosa 'Mme Alfred Carriere' This vigorous climber established itself in one season sending out over 9 x 15 foot canes last year, it's first year in this garden. The white dots on the ficus covered fence are just the beginning. There's another 5 dozen or more buds developing.



 Planted in 2014, Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll' has 8 long canes starting to produce.  Big and Pink.


 Rosa 'Windermere'  It's almost impossible to capture the beauty of this rose.  You must see it in person.  The detail is better below.


Rosa 'Sombreuil Climber' rambling up a dying bay tree, below.


 Unfortunately these were to be the same variety of irises.  I'm really upset.  I like the one below more.

Lovely little setting of native San Francisco Checkerbloom with white Forget-me-not (Omphalodes linifolia 'Venus's Navelwort') and lamb's ears.
