After a week or so of "drought" -- the gardens at Linderhof are abloom!!!
The arbor over the garage and fence where soft purple wisteria meets pink William Baffin.
They're a delight for about a week and a half -- and then it's back to just green! It was how I pictured it when 13 years ago I planted the wisteria and the rose.
A pink rose -- ready for it's close up -- a bit blurry because of a windy day! It's another climbing rose -- over the arbor in the back of the garden -- where one was originally when Mr. Sechler built Linderhof. It's name and pedigree I can't remember . . . for I'm bad about writing things down.
Another sweet rose -- Another pink rose with a heavenly fragrance. Alas, I'm not sure of it's parentage or name either. But it did come from Washington state -- it's a small rose because it's really too shaded for it but the fragrance is heavenly!
And the red Knock Outs that line the herb garden. They are a line of red blossoms. Alas, most Knock Outs are not fragrant but what you get for ease of care and for bloom does over shadow the fragrant part methinks.
And the red Knock Out, ready for her close up!!!!
But roses aren't the only thing blooming in Linderhof's garden . . . no, the iris has been steadily blooming away.
And this beauty -- I'm not sure where it came from -- I don't remember planting it but it's come to Linderhof's garden and it is so beautiful that it knocks my breath out. I've left them in the garden -- I enjoying seeing them there -- when they spread a bit in the next year or so, a few will come in for they'll make a lovely bouquet.
It's Wednesday and what a wonderful way to spend Wednesday than outdoors -- so please join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see what other outdoor adventures there are!
