The Jackson and Perkins catalog arrived yesterday, as I mentioned in an earlier post I do not have many hybrid tea roses. But my husband was nice enough to build me a raised rose bed last summer after we visited Reiman Gardens and seeing the roses there made us both miss the teas. It was late June before the bed was done so only two bushes were planted last summer. Both bushes did well, the red one is Okalahoma, the pink one is Truely Yours. I have my fingers crossed that they make it through the winter.
Double Delight was always my favorite, I see it is still available from Jackson & Perkins so I will order that one for sure plus a few of the fragrant ones. Plus one floribunda caught my eye, Heaven on Earth, it has large peony shaped flowers and is fragrant.
The Carolina Wren is still at our feeder, I was happy to see it is making it through the cold temps we are having right now. Yesterday I saw a Morning Dove at our feeders, I know some folks in Iowa have them at their feeders all winter long, I think ours take a short vacation south because the leave in the late fall and show up back here late winter.
