Just found this forum, I'm a little slow some times, lol. Paul these are really beautiful pictures. I can't grow roses here, they just die on me. I have one that is nothing but root stock I'm sure, it does great, but that's it. That seedling sure looks promising! Are you going to register it? I'm guessing it has some Sovik Prince in the background somewhere??? Good going with the award, I'm sure it's much deserved.

Paul, Did you start those beautiful red snapdragons from seeds or buy as starter plants? They are beauties! I had Rocket snapdragons this year but in mixed colors and they bloomed all summer. The main stem(stalk in my words)had become so heavy that the snapdragons were interfering with the landscaping crew mowing or trimming. One day I held the plant up so the fella could use the weed wacker and trim there. Yesterday or day before I figured it was Sept. I cut them back so they wouldn't be in the way again. Now I'm going to see if they start blooming again. Gardening is all about Trial and Error. I would love to plant some solid colors for next Spring. I love those Rocket varieites.

Amazing, the selection you have been distributed of yard images is looking very nice and exciting to me. Actually, after seen these pictures I am considering to make my own yard.
