Late summer beauties!

Back to the garden for a post about my late summer beauties! I haven't posted about my garden for over 2 weeks now! *EEK*

The sweet pea "Matacuna" is still flowering very well and scenting better than ever when you pass by:

My rose "Rosarium Glücksburg" is flowering again and making me happy:


This is the fairytale rose "Bremer Stadtmusikanten" (Town musician of Bremen), which I have bought as a birthday present for my dear neighbor Ulla who's b-day is on Monday, it also smells just wonderful:


And this my David Austin rose "Wenlock" flowering again:

And my "Claude Monet" the painter rose has got new buds too:

The Penstemon which I had left outside last winter is now flowering for the first time this year:

And the Sedums "Herbstfreude" and "Matrona" are the stars of my border right now:

Hi Carol, your roses are lovely. They looks so healthy, do you spray them against Blackspot?

Carol said...

Thank you Al, nope I don't spray my roses against black spots. Luckily they have no black spots, but I have 2 roses with rust and I'm constantly picking up the leaves with the disease from the plant and from the soil.

Dawn said...

...soooo amazingly beautiful....

Daisy Lupin said...

Carol, I have enjoyed the summer even more by looking at the photographs you have posted of all your roses. You have the most wonderful roses I have seen in any blog, so healthy and abundant. Love your workspace by the way.

Tracy said...

That penstemon is a beauty! Love all the pinks there.

Blackswamp_Girl said...

Oh, how beautiful! The sweet peas make me jealous, as I just had my first flowers this week after trying to grow them for years. :) After seeing your photo, I definitely want more!

Loretta said...

Lovely roses and sweet peas!

Karen said...

Such a lot of beautiful pink at this late time in the garden. I am here enjoying your roses since I don't have any of my own.

Anita said...

Carol!

Yeah, the summer returned today, I am sure everybody took advantage of the nice weather and went garding, including me. Unfortunately, I had to stop now at 9 p.m. as it's already getting darker and darker. I almost lost my garden tools.
Your second rose season is so beautiful, I already commented on Sigrun's blog how much I love your sedum 'Matrona'.
By the way, I am thinking of changing my German garden blogg to an English one.... ??? I'll guess I'll give it a try, I now there are silent "watchers"... ;-)

Naturegirl said...

An absolutely take my breath away Pink post of the pinks in your "romantic" garden! You MUST have a prince hiding behind the bushes besides your frog prince!:)Your garden speaks of romance Carol!!

MariaJ said...

Do you guess which photos are close to my heart? Your sweat pea, (what a wonderful colour!!!) and Claude Monet rose. It looks like theres a MOON behind it....yes, your such a romantic person that we are all curious to know where is your prince?

Anonymous said...

Oh Carol, the roses. I LOVE YOUR ROSES. I am totally in awe that you are able to keep black spot under control. I am having no such luck. Your plants look so lush, hard to believe we are almost at the end of the season by looking at your garden. Rosarium Glucksburg looks like a peony. Do you know the english name for it? Can you guess what I'm thinking? Yep, gotta find space for that one. Oh my. TWT

The Roses take my breath away

The Foxglove ! so gorgeous...
Mine never grow like that !
Or the Deer Eat them

But oh the Sweetpeas...they are my favorites...they are so unusual
oh I wish I could smell them right now.

Your photos are so good I almost feel I could !

Daisies and SweetPeas (my favorites)

Oh this was so much fun.
I feel better just looking at all of your lovely photos.

Back to work now ! thank you.

Becky said...

Oh your colors are so up lifting.
I could "eat" those sweet peas.

Tongue in Cheek Antiques said...

surrounded in the pink floral beauty of your garden I could never be sad! what a secret garden of delight you have!

Missy said...

Your flowers are just gorgeous!!!

Carol said...

He he yes I've guessed TWT and I have looked up "Rosarium Glücksburg" on Google and have found out that it is an English Rose by David Austin from 1969 and that the international name is AUSwife. Hope that helps! I didn't even know that it is an Austin rose *surprised* so I've learned through searching for you. Thanks for that dear! :D

Thank you all for your delightful comments ladies I love reading them!

P.S.:
Nope no prince hiding here in my garden, I swear!

Britt-Arnhild said...

Seems like you still have alot of pink beauty in your garden.
Autumn can be a very beautuful season.

Melissa said...

I love sweet peas but I can only have them near the end of winter early spring. I can't wait to grow some more.
I love your pictures they are great!

Pam Aries said...

I came to your blog via "la fee coriandre!" MY, your garden is lovel and pictures are fabulous!

Alice said...

All your flowers are still so very, very pretty. That 'fairytale' rose will be very hard to part with - it's beautiful. I'm sure your neighbour will love it, too.

You really are to be congratulated on producing so many beautiful flowers throughout the summer. Thank you for inviting us along.

LostRoses said...

Oh, those sweet peas! I can't grow them and I've tried. My mother-in-law used to sow the seeds every year on St. Patrick's Day and she always had a beautiful display of them climbing her fence. St. Patrick apparently hasn't been to my garden. MIL also said the more you pick the more they bloom. Have you found that to be true? I'm envious anyway.

Your roses are stunning as usual!

lindaharre said...

Carol.....I am flattered that you would want to see pics of my garden, but I wouldn't dare print them after seeing all your BEAUTIFUL SPECIMENS!!! I love your photography and flowers! You must have an extra set of green thumbs somewhere:-D) Love your blog...... thanks for commenting on mine! Linda

Blackswamp_Girl said...

Carol, thank you for the comment on my blog. I did some research, and guess what? "Matacuna" and "Cupani" and "Cupani's Original" sweet peas are all the same plant! So now we know why your Matacuna and my "Cupani's Original" look so much alike... although yours still look much more full and lush. :)
