A morning walk in the cottage garden.

I took a walk through the cottage garden this morning, and was pleased to see all the roses blooming!
The New Dawn climbing rose is doing well on the new arbor we put up this spring. 
A Nelly Moser clematis is growing on the opposite side of the arbor, and is beautiful this year.
The Hollyhocks will be opening soon.

Another New Dawn climber growing in the obelisk we purchased with the arbor and iron fences.

We just planted this lavender rose this spring for it's fragrant blooms.

Love New Dawn....starts out this gorgeous pale pink, then fades to white.

Yellow roses were always my favorite.
As I've matured, pinks have become more pleasing to me.

I really enjoy the formation of the old roses.

These beauties remind me of the ruffles on a ladies dress.

I planted a few Knock Out Roses...but only two bushes survived the winter.

There are still more flowers to show their pretty heads.
The lilies are almost ready!
The veronica, and yarrow are slowly peeking through.
No hurry.....there's plenty of summer left to enjoy the flowers.

Like this gorgeous white rose!

I'm working on a new brick path since we put in the iron arbor and fences.
The cottage garden isn't very large....but big enough to keep me busy. Along with the other gardens around the cottage.
Have a wonderful weekend.....and take time to smell the roses!!


  1. Oh Debbie I so enjoyed my cyber stroll under your iron arbor into your enchanting garden. Beauty surrounds ... New Dawn - Pink fades to White and so perfectly captured by your camera with a magical inner glow.
    Happy weekend sweet Debbie!

  2. Debbie, I know that walking into your garden must be close to heaven. I can imagine the wonderful fragrance of all those roses together. The white rose with the pink traces in the petals is beautiful. I also love the pink old fashioned roses, they have a scent that takes me back to my childhood. Blessings to you my sweet friend, hope you are loving your summer. I am waiting for those hollyhocks. oxox, love you, Susie
