Here are a few shots of some April bloomers from the garden. Rose 'Pat Austin'...barely a drop of blackspot in sight, which is quite the achievement this spring! I have to say, I think this is probably my favorite rose. Well, I say that today, but it's so hard to choose just one. Iris 'Orange Glaze' next to Rose 'Mme. Franziska Krueger'. this iris also has a lovely fragrance.
A nice purple combo of 'Carpet Purple' petunia, Salvia farinacea, Mexican feather grass and dusty miller with Rose 'Perle d' Or' in the background. Bronze fennel flanked by 'Butterfly Blue' Scabiosa and petunia.
Can't forget Hairyette Potter...planted with Mexican Feather grass
