Finally have a moment to post some pics

bethnorcal9April 14, 2014

Been so busy working and then relatives came for a visit. I can't seem to catch up on the pics... more and more blooms opening daily and so little time to get them downloaded and tweaked. But just thought I'd drop in a few for now...

BROWN VELVET - I can't believe it's actually "brown" right now!

BULL'S EYE - looking totally different from the first two yrs! Must be the cooler weather we're experiencing.

DOLORES HOPE

GAIL

GOLDEN UNICORN

INTREPID

LAVENDER PINOCCHIO

NEW DAY

TUSCAN SUN

And here's my first attempt at making recycled glass garden art. They call them "Totems" on Pinterest. I'm having fun designing them and shopping for old cheap glassware to use in them.

Glad you posted here. Fun totems. My friend used to make tea cups on posts for the garden. Thought that would be in with tea roses

Always love seeing your photos Beth! Neat garden art - I can see a votive candle at the top of it - several of these with candles, sitting under a full moon like we have tonite......lovely! Except tonite, I would freeze to death - its going to be low of 36! Lower tomorrow, 33.......You have such beautiful and unusual roses - really enjoyed the photos!

Beautiful, Beth! Isn't it lovely when the funny colors actually
ARE those colors? It takes sun and cool, damp temps to develop the blue and purple haze over the orange petals so you get the Hershey bar chocolate haze over Brown Velvet and the other deeper russets. Those conditions also prevent Lavender Pinocchio from turning pink. Thank you for sharing! Kim
