  1. Wow-everything looks terrific! I especially love that New Dawn rose--I'm so envious. I've never been able to grow roses--even the "carefree" ones don't seem to like it here.

  2. My black-eyed-susans have been in bud forever this year, but they don't seem to want to open up for me. I keep telling them to hurry up. They are such a simple flower, but I love them.

  3. All your hard work has certainly paid off! What a beautiful site your property is! I love the interplanting of kale, artichoke, and beans among the flowers. ~ Rachel @ Grow a Good Life

  4. Just beautiful. That dahlia is stunning!
