Here are a few shots of the English garden, which contains about 30 of our 100+ rose cultivars.

And finally, one from right after the snow started of the shade garden under the oak tree.

Snow is pretty... but the brown plants it leaves behind certainly are not. Thankfully, SPRINGTIME IS COMING!!!

Alrighty, that's it for my wintery blissful garden. Who's next? Please start a new thread for your own garden tour, even if all you have is one photo for the time being. We can build upon them as each season progresses!

Thanks, Dawn! I hope you will post your own Garden Tour in the days to come.

I was exploring some of the other photos on my hard drive and ran across a few more to share. Here's a pic of our fish pond during the freezing weather we've been experiencing here. This was taken in late afternoon, so it's after a bit has thawed... but it's still a rare site here. Ice just shouldn't gather around our ponds like this in South Louisiana. Crazy!

Evey, your gardens are lovely. You have made such good use of your sideyard.
I will have to try to find some of my yard when the clematis are blooming.

I'm hoping I will have some lovely images this season for the back corner and gardens at this home (I call it the Cali Gardens since they were inspired by Zuzu and Calif_Sue). They are the newest of the gardens here and almost all of my clematis were planted as 4-inch plants. I had some great growth and blooms on both the clems and roses there, but I guess not enough to inspire me to get out the camera too often last summer. I'm planning to post the step-by-step construction in a new thread for garden construction.

Here's one of the few photos I can find from that back corner, taken last spring. The clematis and jasmine on the back lattice are all fairly new babies in this photo. When we bought the house, this area had no garden, but only three overgrown evergreen bushes that spilled over and made it difficult to walk by the pool on that side.

I love what I am seeing.
Which roses are you growing as companion to the clematis ?
