In the Garden

Some of you have asked to see pictures of my very happy garden, so here we go.

First, these are images from last year, about this same time. (My garden does its best thing in June.)

This is a rosa rugosa called Agnes. It’s a bit peachy when it opens, then turns yellow.

  1. Beautiful! I have a few of them in my garden, though never knew what Bachelor Buttons were called. They just appeared in one of our gardens this year.
