Heather from stylemindchic.com and Jennifer from awellstyledlife.com is sponsoring a #stylefocus event where we were asked to showcase our own personal style or what inspires us with a post from the past. My garden always inspires me. Enjoy and be sure to stop by and see Heather and Jennifer for tons of inspiration!! Spring came late to my garden on the Central Coast this year but some of my favorites are in full flush. Let’s take a look at Roses in the garden and a garden party.
Golden Celebration one of my absolute favorite David Austin Roses. She never fails to shine! Even in the rain.
Nepeta (catmint) is my go to border plant. It blooms, you whack it back and within a couple weeks it blooms again all year long in my garden. That is Pegasus (another David Austin) peaking out above.
Nepeta in my front yard framing an obelisk made by our wonderful friend and craftsman Jim. He made me two for my birthday last year. How lucky am I?!!
The Antique Rose Glory de Dijon never disappoints
David Austin Molineux with lantana in the background. Can you tell I am partial to yellow and peach roses? I have a few pinks left in my yard but I my favorites are the amber, egg yolky yellows.
Last weekend we hosted a benefit dinner for a local charity with some friends. My friend and florist extraordinaire (Roxanne Storm) crafted this fabulous bouquet with roses from my garden. If you need something special for a party or help with a wedding shoot me an email and I will get you in contact with her.
Here is another shot of both arrangements with the chefs (aka the two geezers) readying the barbeque in the background.
I would love to hear what is blooming in your garden and if you have any outdoor parties planned to celebrate the season! Thank you for reading Roses in the Garden and a Garden Party.
