I bought this rose last summer. This is Laura Bush. She is a floribunda rose and grows really well here in my zone 9 garden. I love the form of the petals and the delightful spicy fragrance.
Speaking of Delightful...This rose is a Double Delight. This one is tea rose tree. It does great here and the colors are amazing. Here it is in a bud form
This is Double Delight after it has opened fully.
I was watching this thing swinging in the tree and bouncing around like it was a ball. I had to get a closer look and come to find out it was a bird building her nest. The nest is made out of pieces of tarp and pine needles. It just hangs from a tree branch. I am pretty sure this is a Bullocks Oriole nest.
The Calycanthus is in full bloom. It smells like strawberry wine!
