Out Shopping Yesterday - The Roses Were Blooming

Yesterday, DH and I were out shopping. It was another beautiful day, but, it was different from our visit a couple of months or so ago as the roses that line just about every street was blooming. I stopped and took photos of the roses that were along the last two streets we walked down. If anyone is thinking of planting masses of Iceberg roses to create a formal look, or if you just like Iceberg roses,here are more images. There are Knock Out roses and a few others too.

Roses and palm trees, looks like my kind of heaven!

Just today I noticed (for the first time) a row of five Distant Drums in full bloom nearby. I didn't have time to stop and take a picture, but I was very happy to see somebody else who was a fan of this Buck Rose.

There are tons of roses in bloom. My parents' neighbor has some lovely Living Easy and Just Joey plantings in his front yard with what I suspect may be Reve d'Or trained over his front door. It's just beautiful right now.

I saw a gigantic Mutabilis in full bloom a day ago and a white Noisette creeping over a fence that I thought was either Lamarque or Madame Alfred Carriere which is occasionally available at nurseries around here. Many Lady Banks roses are looking beautiful.

Julia Childs and Icebergs all over are just covered in blooms. It's a wonderful time of year! I'm noticing more roses than ever before here because I'm actually paying attention to landscaping everywhere I go.

The roses edged in boxwood are really ornamental and soften the hardscape so well. It turns it into an almost park-like setting.
