Gadabout Gardener

You can’t be a resident of my rose garden and not get along with the others. That’s why I’m naming this feature, ‘Best Buds’! /Photos by Joe Barkovich.

Gadabout Gardener: End Of Season

It’s end of season for Gadabout Gardener, an annual spring through fall feature on the blog. This selection was photographed late this morning, Sunday, October 3, during a steady drizzle from above. If the weather stays mild as forecast, this gardener is expecting to have blooms into November. The rose at bottom right is the floribunda Singin’ In The Rain, an appropriate capture for a day like today! Until next spring, let’s be thankful for our gardens and the good things found therein./ Photos by Joe Barkovich.

Gadabout Gardener: In Love With Nicole

A floribunda rose, Nicole is cream with pink edges. It grows to three feet to four feet high and has a frilly, large, semi-double bloom. It has a light fragrance and is a repeat bloomer. It also is one of the early-blooming roses in the side garden./Photos by Joe Barkovich.
