Phlowers – A Week of Roses/Yellow Rose

This year I converted two of my Square Foot vegetable gardens into rose beds. The soil is still loose and full of good compost, and the new roses have thrived. I bought these as bargain roses in the Spring, driving from place to place to find the best colors and varieties. I devoted the beds to a bright color scheme of yellows, corals, peaches and whites. Highlighted with a few white geraniums, the flower bed will glow in the moonlight.

The first rose to bloom in these beds is Golden Glow. Although the rose has only a faint fragrance, the color is gorgeous, and oh my, the staying power of the flower has been miraculous. The petals opened on Sunday, have given a gorgeous display, and even after a very heavy thunderstorm last night, are still holding on strong this beautiful Thursday morning. Hooray!

  1. Lovely!! Believe I’ve said it before but will say it again – you are blessed with a green thumb. Whenever I see a yellow rose, I am reminded of a very old song (it allegedly goes all the way back to the the 1850’s), “The Yellow Rose of Texas” a classic.

      I am exactly the same with that tune. I hear it whenever I look at my yellow roses. Thanks so much Janie. I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend.
