You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.

Reine des Violettes

Rose 'Reine des Violettes,' one of my favorites.

I really need to get my roses "leftover" from last year in the ground before all the new ones get here. I actually got one planted this afternoon. The tea 'Tipsy Imperial Concubine.' Isn't that a great name? I used to have the history of it. I'll try to find it again.

So here's what I have left in my leftovers:

Mrs. Dudley Cross
Baroness Henriette Snoy
Souv. de Pierre Notting
Alexander Hill Gray
Bouquet Parfait -not sure if I'm gonna plant
Pink Mislabelled from Ashdown (email Paul with pic)

Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have 10 more on the way!

p.s. I decided today that anyone who gardens on a hillside (that would be me) is an idiot!
