Dreaming About the Garden...

Its time. The time of year when I get that bug, to go down to the local nursery, and buy,buy,buy... I love roses, and I have a place here that sells the David Austin roses. Since I can never remember to buy online. They only ship to California in Jan, and Feb.  So thank goodness for Lakewood Nurseries!  I just bough 6 different varieties of English Roses for the garden, and they are bareroot. Hopefully I will get some blooms by late summer.  I do have some mature roses, Eden, Cecil Brunner, and Pillows Flight roses, and I love to cut them and bring them in every year!
  Here are my Eden climbers making their way up my arbor around my fountain.
I love to cut them and bring them in, they make such a dramatic statement in this silver teapot.

This photo is one of my favorite taken from a home in Veranda. I love the formal French Gardens, mixed with the English style.

Just beautiful, they almost look like Cecil Climbers, so beautiful.
I love the simplicity of this, if I were to put a pool in our yard, this is how I would like it to look.

I LOVE roses too, and mine so badly need to be cut back! Are you talking about the nursery on Lakewood Blvd in Bellflower? I have gone there for years, since my kids were little. Bought many a rosebush there for myself and gifts as well. I love to give the bareroot rosebushes as a gifts. It's a gift that keeps on giving!
Take care, Sue
