Roses and Lavender

Today is a special Green Thumb Sunday and Garden Blogger Bloom Day double edition and I'm celebrating my beau-ti-ful roses. The pink rambling rose is blooming now too, isn't it pretty, especially against the lavender?

These are two lavender plants that I just planted last year. They're probably a bit squished now, but oh, they're so lovely with the roses. I can't bear to move them. Plus I have visions in my head of lavender sachets, lavender lemonade and more.

The outback roses are winding up they're blooming session, but they're still so pretty and worth the three year wait.

Also in bloom:

  • Bellflowers
  • Catmint or Nepeta
  • Coreopsis (two varieties including Coreopsis grandiflora, sunfire tickseed)
  • Petunias
  • Rudbeckia
  • Sage
  • Scabiosa
  • Veronica Speedwell
  • Zinnia
