Although Betsy and I always hate losing a rose from our garden, replacing a rose gives us the opportunity to enjoy new ones. A new rose for us this year is Beautiful Dreamer. I tried to give it a ‘dreamy’ look in this photo, but I definitely do think it is beautiful.

I have quite a bit of Irish in my background, so I just had to have this rose — Saint Patrick — in our yard. It’s a little hard to tell in this picture, but when the blossom first opens the outer petals have a touch of green to them. I guess that explains how it got its name.

We may not make it to California to see the beauty of that state in person, but at least we can enjoy this gorgeous Malibu rose right in our own yard.

Betsy and I are fortunate to have flowers blooming almost continuously from Spring through Autumn. While roses are our very favorites, we also enjoy some beautiful lilies this time of the year. This beauty is called Freedom's Glow. I love the color.

I remember hearing a song ‘O How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning’ as a child. That song has been on my mind a great deal since Betsy and I have started taking early morning walks around the golf course behind our house. (We have to get an early start so we finish before the golfers arrive!). But although I may hate getting up, there are some definite rewards that make it all worthwhile. This is one of those rewards. Taken April 30, 2016.

Betsy and I have been pleased with the display that our irises are putting on this Spring. I think we’ve had more blossoms this year than we’ve ever had. We’ve had about 20 different varieties in bloom so far. This beauty is called Floor Show. It, like most of our other irises, is a rebloomer, so we hope to enjoy another display in the autumn.
