Outdoor Wednesday 4/28/10 - Roses Everywhere!

Outdoor Wednesday is such a wonderful day! When else do you get to travel all over the US and peek into yards? Be sure to check out all the other participants at A Southern Daydreamer.

This Spring has been an unbelievable year for roses. I'm not sure if it's the cool weather but they are just breathtaking this season. This is the third season for most of our Knockout roses and the blooms are the largest ever...not to mention they are completely loaded!

This is my Double Knockout Tree rose.

If you follow my blog, you will remember that Mr. Dumpling built an arbor for me last year. I saw the arbor in my sweet niece's wedding photo and he copied it. We planted Little Pinkie climbing roses on each side along with clematis. Well, after one year...look at this!!

The daylilies are also starting to bloom. Right now, only the Stella's are blooming. However, we went to an Day Lily farm earlier this month and bought at least a dozen of what should be fantastic lilies. We're waiting on those and I see a few buds.

Come back and visit. I'm going to try to stay current with Outdoor Wednesday!

You are right - your Knockouts are beautiful! I want some so much but my lot is just too shady. Our daylilies have beautiful foliage but not blooms yet. :)

Glad to see you back!

Beautiful!! I'm wanting to try my hand at the knockout roses, but I'm not sure we have enough sun where they would go.

Lovely blog. I have been following for a while. Love your blue and white dishes. I collect Blue Willow and did a Thanksgiving post about them. However, today's delimma is this. I view a blog post, make a mental note to go back to it, then forget which blog I was on. So, my question is have you recently posted a blog about a new rug in your kitchen? Thanks.

I know it's an old post, but I wanted to comment how lovely your landscaping and pictures are. My husband built an arbor for me too and I have clematis (a met Monday post on my blog) growing on it but would love to grow the pinky roses like you have. However, I have such a problem with deer that the roses, like the others I try to grow, I'm afraid, would be eaten.

Uh Ohh, is Boudreaux a bichon. I saw him in your corner pic. We lost ours over a year ago. Your home reminds me of home in Alexandria. Thanks for your comment. Lori
