Alphabe Thursday

Today our 'master' Jenny gave us the letter R. For me R is for ROSES. I have about 70 varieties in my garden. At the moment there are only a few in bloom. I'll show you some pictures.
This is NEVADA , always the first rose in bloom, these are only the first flowers.....

I don't remember the name, I think it's a rose from KORDES .

Here are some pictures I made last year. This one is Westerland, a beautuful rose.
Dentelles de Bruxelles, a LOUIS LENS rose, in fall there are a lot of hips.

Gipsy boy or (Zigeuner Knabe), lovely rose with a great smell.

I think you can imagine the magnificent 'rosary' here in june........ when all the roses are in bloom.

I am very busy preparing the fleemarket in july and preparing a journey to U.K. in june with my gardenclub. That's why I did not make a post last week and I did not visit the other participants at all.......

  11. I love roses, but I was never good at growing them. Plus, they get earwigs. ew.
