Besides the usual assortment of flowers blooming in my garden, I have really gone back into the veggie gardening this year.

Smiling Thanks! I really enjoy my garden. I just can't imagine life without it! I am always puttering around doing something in the garden. Like today I put two bags of compost on the front yard tomatoes. The rest of them already have compost.

Something wonderful!!! I bet you are really enjoying your young tender greens. Rita, what are the really green, darker green plants in the middle of the third picture of veggies.

OH yes, your roses are astounding!!! Your hard work is really paying off with so much beauty.

Thanks so much for sharing them, Mona

Beautiful, Rita! But I can't figure out what happened with your last posting of pictures at the bottom of the last page -- the one woth VERNAL TU-TONE, etc. The pictures displayed bore no resemblance to what you said they were, but when I enlarged them they totally changed to the pictures you'd intended to put there. has anyone else noticed that, or is it just my computer? Actually I'm at the beach now and using my IPad, but I can't imagine that my IPad is responsible for the difference in the pictures...

But on the bright side we're getting to see two sets of beautiful pictures instead of just one set!

Betty, I don't understand. They are correct on my computer.

Those are brocoli raab. You use and cook the greens. This is the first year I have ever tried them.

Thank you all for the kind comments!

Rita, when I look at the first picture that you said is VERNAL TU-TONE with STELLA, I see three brick semi-circles with three rose bushes in them. it's only when I open it that it changes to your daylily picture. And it's the same with the next few pictures, too.

The rose planters are on the second to last picture. But all the pictures are there and labeled correctly on my computer. I really can't figgure out how it could show up incorrectly as they are uploaded here at ATP as you know. Sad

It must have something to do with my IPad, I guess. Very strange...

Fantastic! You seem to have the magic touch with roses. Some of those photos belong in a gardening magazine. I also really like Lava Flow.

Smiling Thanks. I am really proud of my roses. For years I wouldn't have roses because I read they are so much work. Well, they are work but it just seems easy to me to have nearly pefect roses.

Fabulous pictures, Rita! And I did find out that the problem is at my end with my IPad. So I now know that if the description does not seem to match the picture I definitely need to open/enlarge the picture!

Your roses look fantastic!
