Arvid`s garden, Lista, the 10th of August 2011. My "Back of the house" so to speak has slowly improved over the years. Around a small herbal garden over various arches are rambling and scrambling following roses and clematises: From left to right: Perle d`Azur, Illusion, Mme Alfred Carriere,Antike, Henry Kelsey, Romantika, Alexander MacKenzie and Hansa. Other roses here, not visible or now visibly not in bloom are Roseanna, Awakening,Kordes Aloha, Morning Jewel, Rote Flamme, Laguna, Arndt, Shogun,Westerland,Parade,That`s Jazz, Jasmina, Nahema, Amadeus, Bonica Climbing ,Mozart and some others. Not blooming clematises here are White Jackmanii and The Vagabond. Not visible is Pink Fantasy. The white rose up front looks a lot like the hybrid Rugosa Blanc double de Coubert so much that I am certain it is the one. It was given to me a number of years ago by a friend and member of the local Garden Society as a sucker. She died recently of cancer, but her rose is still there blooming and thriving, as pretty as ever. And I hope it will be for many years to come. This is also a special quality we may cherish in roses or in plants in general for that matter. They remind us of someone.
