Old garden roses and thankful Thursday…

Ok, first I am thankful it is Thursday, because I can’t take any more work.  I am over that big time, but gosh I am grateful that I have a job… (just keeping it real you know??)

   ~ grateful for MME. Antoine Mari,  the most beautiful tea rose. I love it.  Also, my Malva Zabrina reseeded for the 3rd or 4th year… I winter-sowed them in 05 I think…

   ~ this is Niobe Clematis, I have wanted this one forever, and have gotten 2 that were mislabeled, so I am thankful this is the correct one. Now, if it only matches the rose I have it paired with….

  ~ thankful, more rain.. on Zephirine Droughin. The fragrance is to die for, a climbing bourbon, thornless rose. Love it.

  ~ Zephy draped thru Limelight Hydrangea..  (the color is more true on the photo above)

  ~ thankful for my China roses, they are so cute! Found rose~ Old Gay Hill, I believe in a cemetery in NC?

  ~ thankful this little rose is still going, one of my first roses, before I really got into antique roses… Nearly Wild, love the white center, it seems to glow… (bees really love single blooms too!)

  ~ Baby Love, not old just really pretty. Thankful for the plentiful continuous blooms on this one. Think it is considered a mini rose, but it is good size and healthy. Grows well in part shade…

  ~ thankful for this little garden vignette, I photograph it quite a bit because it never fails to make me happy. I love the little tinkle of the fountain in the background.

So, with all that is wrong with this world, I am thankful for my little piece of happiness and the health of my family. We are blessed.
