A New Day

Rose New Day, Fairfield Glade. May 20, 2009.

Wednesday was an absolutely beautiful day up here on the Plateau — the sky was blue and the sun was shining.  It was almost too warm in the afternoon to work in the yard, but that didn’t stop me.  I thoroughly enjoy working in the yard even if that includes mowing, which I finished up early in the afternoon.

The most enjoyable chore I had to do was plant our last new rose.  I had to replace one that we lost during the winter.  So now our rose garden is complete — we have 48 rose bushes.  That’s about all that we can handle without getting a larger yard!

The picture above is another of new roses this year — New Day.  It is slightly fragrant as well as being very pretty.  I have more trouble with yellow roses than any other color — they seem to be a favorite of just about every bug that likes to chew of rose bushes!  However, we’re hoping that I can keep this one healthy.

    I do hope you did not plant your new rose in the same place as the one that died without completely exchanging all of the soil near where the old roots were. A dieing rose exudes something that is detrimental to the thrivins of a plant of the same kind.

    Such gorgeous roses – and they all have names. However do you remember 48 different rose names??? Do you keep the name label at each bush? Just curious over here. Have a lovely week-end.

    This is a very pretty one. Great name…it looks like a sunrise. I never can decide if I like yellow or pink ones best. I wonder why red is the most popular for giving?

    It’s a shame the bugs love the yellow ones so much. Yellow roses are my favorites. Yours is gorgeous!

  17. Rambling Woods Says:

    I don’t have one rose bush…so your rose garden sounds amazing judging by this one rose….
