This is our latest addition to the flower bed off the back patio. Isn't she a beauty!

Beautiful rose.  I've tried but never had much luck with them and too much work in our damp climate.  Following is a climatis I started from a cutting a few years ago, now growing off the end of the porch.

We started this bed about 2 years ago. In it are tea roses, daisy's, balloon flowers, yarrow, hibiscus, day lilies, salvia, lapines, sedum, alium, and several of which I can't remember the names of!  ::)   I just added these full size roses this spring. Roses are real hard to grow here (at least for me) and I have found that copius amounts of bug spray is the answer...along with horse manure, and tons of luck.

In the front of the house we have hostas, I especially love the blue shaded ones, and impatience (sp?), west side are the peony bushes, and on the east side are mums, more hibiscus, iris, and several unidentified (forgot them too  ::) ) flowers. Down by the vegetable garden we have a big patch of iris...dark purple, and burgandy are my favorites, and then a huge orange poppy plant.  :o  Up on the east patio we have marigolds, and petunias, and pansies.

I get alot of satisfaction from the various beds, and flowers. They bring smiles to my soul when I see them.  :)

I left my clematis at the old house when we moved. I am very tempted to go dig it up and bring it home where it belongs. They are a beautiful flower. One that has totally gotten out of control is the trumpet vine. Be careful where you plant this bad boy, as he will totally take over the house literally! I left him at the old house with no regrets. I had planned on planting him next to the power pole, good thing I didn't, the power company would be out daily trimming that DanG thing back.

WOW, Patty, you're growing some fun stuff.

Watch out for that balloon flower. It will spread uncontrollably, also.

I've planted a few native looking perenials, mostly blue things, amoung the small evergreens along my driveway but about half were killed by 'cold and no snow'. I pretty much gave up on flowers and just enjoy the natural ones I find in the woods.

No, No, No, Patty;  don't tell me you planted a trumpet creeper on purpose.  :'(  When I'se a kid and would try to chop those things out of the cotton, my hoe was liable to rebound and cut my toe.  Never heard 'em called anything but "cow itch", 'til I was all growed up............

Here,  it's called Virginia creeper.  Our polebarn behind the milkbarn is covered with them.  Climbed up the 20' pole on one side,  came down the pole on the opposite side,  covered the gable in between and hangs down from the gable sso you have to part it to drive a tractor in.

Yes! That's it!  Watch out for that bad boy I say !

I got it from a vendor who sold plants in the booth next to mine at farmer's market. He traded it for a couple homemade pies. I thought I was getting the better end of the bargain. Boy was I wrong...pretty nieve I guess  ::)

Patty, you oughta bake him one of them "special" chocolate pies as a thank-you gift for them pretty flowers.  I think that one is in the Morning Glory family.  Coulda been worse, though.  Coulda be Wisteria or Kudzu. ::)

That sure is a beautiful rose Patty. You must be doing something special to get blooms like that. A friend of mine that I used to work with used to grow some like that and his secret was the dried sludge from the local sewage treatment plant.

As for trumpet vines I planted one of those on my chimney and soon realized I had made a mistake. I cut it down and took one of the sprouts that came up a couple years later and planted it next to the power pole in front of my house. In no time it was covering the pole and the neighbors were digging up sprouts out of my yard. I have half a dozen neighbors that have plants growing from my original vine. The power company tree trimming crew came by this spring and cut out a section near the base to kill the vine. Guess what...............ITS BACKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.
