more bloomers

Amazing what sunlight, soil, and water can bring about.

Gentle Hermione

The Generous Gardener

Not all the roses residing at MeadowRIdge are David Austins. Here is one we rescued from the jungle last summer.

If you have any idea what she is, please let me know. She does have a lovely fragrance. She's recovering well from her lack of sunlight and nourishment in years past. Bees are absolutely delirious around her.

This little sweetie is Jeanne La Joie. There are two, one on each side of the back arch along the berry beds. In the city garden she grew to be a climber. Here she died back to the ground last winter but came back in a big way this summer.


  1. They are all so gorgeous it must be difficult to have a favourite! I really must grow more roses in my garden.

  2. Hello Sharon,

    Has your mystery rose got prickles along all of the stem. It looks like a Rugosa variety.

    Happy days.

  3. Oh my, these are beautiful, Sharon!! My favorite is Margareta - Crown Princess, that is!! Such a treat to see them!!
