Today is the Longest Day of the Year, so you'd think I'd have more time, right? Ha! Anyhow, I have some beautiful roses blooming now. The first two pictures are of 'Marie Daly'.
If you know what the insect on the rose is, please let me know! (Click on the picture for a larger view.) They don't eat the blooms, but they sure do like the flowers.
'Molineux' is looking great. This rose is definitely on the way to becoming one of my favorites.
I grew 'Double Delight' in California, but I don't think the color was this intense. It is so stunning in the garden.
'Lyda Rose' is very fragrant. Those unknown insects are also on this rose. There is a bumble bee, too.
The heirloom Purple Ruffles Basil really sets off the orange rose. I love the combination. That Basil seems to make everything look great!
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
