Starting up a June thread here... can't believe that the year is almost half over already! How about some of y'all do some parades? I still don't have a single "old" rose blooming yet (soon.. maybe within a week?), so I wanna ogle everyone elses!

Oh, and Vicki - WOW o WOW! Stunning! You are gorgeous!!!

Here's a Adobe Sunrise to help get everyone started.

I get near the roses when I walk out in the garden and wow can I smell the rose garden. Smells wonderful!
The rose planters in front have started to bloom.

Rita, I love your gardens!

My roses are gorgeous this year. It is a shame to cut them back and dig them out when they are so gorgeous, but they are surviving in their pots.

I am moving the end of the month to my new place. I am so happy!!! It is a chore to dig everything out, but will be fun to plan new plant combos. I'll have more living and gardening space and a shed for all my garden tools!

I currently live in a townhome complex. Lately, it has turned into a bad bipolar reality show. I look forward to being able to sit on my patio smelling my roses instead of the neighbor's junkyard dog s*&^! In the new place, I will have some space between myself and whatever kind of crazy decided to move next door.

However, I suspect that I will have problems with deer.....

Trading one problem for the other Andi! Best wishes on the move! Thumbs up

Beautiful roses Rita!

My bloom flushes are winding down and I've been trimming and cleaning them up. Daylilies are starting now and as soon as it cools a bit, I will start tackling the other unplanted side of the garden, I still have over 250 plants in pots, mostly daylilies, iris and roses.

Insanely jealous of everyone's beautiful blooms!!! Theresa Bugnet (sp?) will be open hopefully tomorrow. I have lots of buds everywhere, but nothing open yet. YET! Irises are still going strong.. have LOTS of buds that are about to open. Didn't take pictures today, too busy planting & resetting a fenceline that my one retarded dog busted down chasing a squirrel. *sigh*

Sue, thank you for posting the Jacob's Robe. I like the softer colors better than Joseph's Coat, too. Lovey dubby

Shannon, they will forgive you. Group hug Angel

Rita, repeating myself, but I love those rose planters. I tip my hat to you.

Andi, sounds like deer are a much better problem to have. Big Grin
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Sue, is your Jacob's Robe a thorny monster? Mind sure is....but the blooms make it all worthwhile.
I really really need to get busy taking pictures. My roses have never looked so beautiful.
Sounds like everyone is having a good year, rose-wise...
Toni, summer will get here soon enough! Hang in there!
Lovey dubby

You know, I haven't even noticed the thorns because I haven't really gotten in there yet to do an major pruning, just snipping off old blooms so far. Shrug! Hilarious!

Um, well thanks, blush, but really, seriously... I don't look like that 99.9% of the time.
I felt kind of weird/narcisistic posting it. *Blush*

First rose in bloom today (Rugosa Wasagaming) but I was too stinkin' busy to go look at it. Looks like Harrison's Yellow will pop next.
I've been crazy busy taking care of my 2013 goslings, 9 English Lops bunnies, weeding and potting up more plants!
WOW! Not enough hours in the day and this old biddy sure gets sore. Blinking

Moving house is the ultimate garden makeover. When I did this 4 years ago, I found I was so focused on making the garden look good that I planted things too close together. It looked good the first year, but I have been giving plants away and making space adjustments ever since.

My first rose of the year, Granada (grown in a container) and purchased as a bare root rose this spring,
