Combinations That Light Up the Garden

With the honeysuckles really taking off this year I love the combination of golden orange with the deep pink Betty Prior roses.
Green always sets off red, especially with these Olympiad roses.

Yellow and yellow work nicely with the Golden Showers climbing rose.
Take white, a bit of pink with a deep green background and it creates a lovely combination with this peony. Any color of rose goes well with McDuff, especially these early blossoms on the First Prize rose.

    My roses have just begun to bloom.

    McDuff looks a bit like he's wearing one of those headbands with the antennae, only with roses on the tips instead of sparkly balls or hearts or stars.

  7. The flowers are gorgeous! And McDuff... he looks like he's in on a little secret. There's got to be a story there.
