The weather was splendid this week so I've spend it mostly outside. The garden is slowly becoming the paradise I wish for. New flowers are blooming everyday and I took hundreds of pictures, so it's hard to choose what to post, but for today I decided to show you some of my Clematis & Roses which are in bloom right now:
Above is "Auswife", called "Rosarium Glücksburg" in Germany and below is "Constance Spry" which is now growing on my rose arc. Both are English David Austin roses:
"Constance Spry" is a climbing rose and has a wonderful strong but lovely scent which makes me want to smell her all the time when I pass by:
Next is "Wenlock" also an Austin rose, she scents very good and doesn't the raindrops look good on her?
Next is "Clematis Pilu" climbing up on one of my little trees:

Now this "Augusta Luise" a wonderful scented rose which I bought last summer and she's coming along so fine, see she's just unfolding her petals:
Climbing on the blue trellis (my dad made for me) is Clematis "Rouge Cardinal":
I love catching rain drops on my flowers, can you tell? ;-) This is "Rouge Cardinal" close up:
One of my absolute faves blooming right now is my "Eden rose 85", she has such big buds:
and unfolds her petals slowly as well:
She is voted for the world's most beautiful rose this year!
Then I have Clematis "Angelique" planted in a pot on my deck 2 years ago and it is still blooming very well also I think I should change the soil for the next season:
Here is "Angelique" up close and personal:
I did show you my Clematis "Nelly Moser" already in my last post she is still in full bloom:
Well I guess I better stop here or this post never ends lol!
In the next picture you see a little bouquet from my garden and one of the magazines I've offered to swap in my last post:
I'd like to thank all my blogging friends who have offered me to swap magazines, you are all so very kind! I swap Somerset Life with Jen Duncan and some other mags with Nature Girls lovely neighbor and friend TWT and with Andrea Singarella now, because they were the first to offer/answer, but there is always next month and new issues and I hope that you, who I can't swap with this time will still be up for a swap next time! It's so nice to meet bloggers more personal through real mail and swapping and have I recently told you that I love to swap? In my next post I have to show you all the gorgeous things I've got from a swap with the lovely Cari Craft today!
Happy weekend everyone! Carol xox
