Carola,

Your rose "Augusta Luise" is really gorgeous.
This afternoon, we will go shopping to one of my favourite shops, a wholesaler for in- and outdoor decorations. I am already quite exited - I'll guess this time, I will buy that iron amphorae I am dreaming of since months...
By the way, did you already cut your alllium christophii? My alliums already “lost” their violet colour.
Enjoy your garden - as long as the weather is fine (our sky is already cloudy, I am wondering if we will finally get some rain tonight).

Regards,
Anita

Ok, Carol, just when I think you can't possibly post any photos of roses prettier than what you've already done, you prove me wrong! Augusta Luise is heavenly. Her petals look like delicate tissue paper, and pink and peach is a wonderful combination. You've got the green thumb for sure!

It seems that the roses have to smell very well!

Carolyn said...

She is a beautiful Rose!
Your pictures are fabulous and I loved cooling down with the previous post as well. Such delightful pretties to look at. Love the table and its clustering on it and around it. As always such a pleasure for me to come to your blog. Happy gardening to you dear Carol.
Instead of posting my blog in the identity space I have posted my website link because I don't think I ever shared with you I have a website, which will be revamped soon and have a whole new look to it. I thought you might like to read some of what is there while relaxing in your ever so lovely space of piece of heaven here on earth. I just love your garden.

Your pictures get more beautiful every day.....which means the flowers get more beautiful every day......thanks for sharing.... I can almost smell that rose....

Alice said...

What a beautiful rose - they just get better and better. Dare I ask how many roses you have growing in your delightful little garden? The perfume must be quite intoxicating in the early morning and evening.

Your blue/purple flowers in the earlier post looked so peaceful and cool. Just right for a hot day.

Carol said...

Thank you all for your nice and friendly comments dear friends and readers! :D

Snappy nope this is no English rose from the David Austin nursery, Augusta Luise is a German rose from Tantau!
