It's Sunday and a Lazy One at That...
This moss rose is named 'Henri Martin', but that is probably incorrect. It is a moss rose, probably 'Jacques Cartier'.
Always a wonderful idea, this arbor is covered with two different roses and a clematis.
This musk rose is a lot of fun.
I think this is John Cabot or William Baffin, both of the Canadian Explorer Series, both look very similar.
'Dainty Bess' rose, one I need to find for my garden, I think.
...so I thought I would share a couple of my favorite pictures from this year. (So lazy I didn't finish posting this until Monday morning.)
I think I need to try much harder with my roses after collecting these pictures taken at the Chicago Botanical Gardens this past summer. I have selected some good varieties for central Wisconsin, but there are some things I could do better.
Cut back plants around them, and weed better around their roots.
Tie up all my climbers.
Prune more effectively.
