Romancing the Garden

59,449 Views
Just as I love romantic interiors, I love romance in the garden...and I plant flowers and trees to evoke that mood....below, the French antique rose Fantin Latour which has been in my garden for a long time!
Renowned for it's sweet perfume and full cabbage like form...sweet!
Although the exterior of our home is not what I would have chosen if I built it, I try to soften and enhance what I have....the colour palette of white, soft pink and lavender suit our shade woodland garden...
The Kolkwitzia tree "Pink Cloud " near our front porch...
" Pink Cloud"
Roses just beginning to bloom....
More roses in the south border....and oak leaf hydrangeas...
Flagstone paths lead to different "rooms " in the garden....
The lower terrace.....
Because of our location and dappled shade, moss grows every where, which I welcome here....
...and here on a stone bridge crossing the stream....
Stone stairs to the lower terrace, in full bloom....
Cinderella "Fairy" rose.....
Peony "Sarah Bernhardt " from my garden....
.....and on my kitchen island....
.....and conditioning them in my laundry room....
....adding romantic touches here and there from the garden....
