GBBD in July

The time runs and we're in July, 15th and the Garden Blogger Bloom Day is now again. What is flowering in my Northern garden in the warmest month? My roses began to bloom, they have many buds and flowers. And they smell wonderfully!

 rose floribunda 'Pristine'

climbing rose 'Flammentanz'



 Canadian rose 'Therese Bugnet'

Canadian rose 'Martin Frobisher'


rose floribunda 'Golden showers'


The water got warm in my pond and the water lilies (nymphaea) have begun to open their buds. Three nymphaeas - two white and one red - decorate water surface.


Clematis is in bloom as well! Here is 'Cardinal' variety:




This is  the bush rose 'Blanc double de Coubret' : its strong fragrance feels in a distance!

 


The Grootendorst rose grows near the pond. I have 2 varieties of it: 'FJ Grootendorst' - the red one and "Pink Grootendorst' (third photo). These roses are very hardy. I love its carnation-style flowers.

'Amber Velvet' floribunda rose

I've bought this rose named 'Amber Velvet' and I wanted to have amber color rose, but... it's deep red and beautiful! Who knows this rose? What the variety is?
I'm glad my garden is colorful and fragrant, I can enjoy every moment of the only warm season in my garden!  What is flowering in your garden now?Thank you!

  2. Beautiful roses! They are so stunning. I should move my roses into brighter place, so my roses get more sun shine for set their flower buds.

    1. Thank you Jenny but I'm not such skilled: every spring I have some roses died of frost as I don't know how to better cover them for wintering.

  4. Your garden is so beautiful now, I love all your different roses with one favourite ´Blanc double de Coubert´. The white water lily is a beauty!

  5. I've just bought a double white climbing rose - White Cloud - and need another maybe Blanc double de Coubret would be good. Is it diesease resistant and does it flower more than once?

    1. ´Blanc double de Coubert´ is very disease resistant, I have no problem with it at all. But it flowers once during 2 months. Although in UK climate it might bloom twice.

    1. I agree Dimi to sit near the pond and have a cup of tea with you, my friend! I could turn on the water fall and we'll hear the sound of falling water....

  7. You have some beautiful roses. I see that several of them are from Canada. That would make sense since we have similar climates.

    1. You're right Alain! I do not cover them for wintering, they have no thorns, they bloom all summer and smell well. Canadian roses completely suit to our climate.

  10. All your roses look wonderful, both in garden and in pond. In estonian, water lilies are called roses also, water roses! In my garden, it is high peak of summer alliums and phloxes are about to bloom any day now (first blooms are open already). I'm still witing for my bee and butterlfy magnets - coneflovers, liatrises and echinopses to bloom.

    1. Hi, Tistou!
      I liked you call water lilies as water roses!
      My phlox and cornflowers are not yet in bloom, sure your garden is colorful with blooming alliums. Have a nice day!

  11. Wonderful collection of roses in you garden Nadezda. Last few weeks have been rather devastating for the plants here, so no roses blooming at the time. Glad to enjoy them here. Thanks!

    1. Yes, the weather brings surprises this year, Marian. I fertilize roses and other plants for they survive and bloom. A lot of work in a garden. So we enjoy flowers!

  13. So many beautiful roses! It's nice that you have lots of scented ones, I'm trying to get a nice rose collection in my garden but many of them turn out to have no scent. Hope you're having a great summer!

    1. One has strong scent as 'Blanc double..' and others a bit of fragrance as 'Proud of England' or 'Martin Frobisher' but I love them all. Thank you Ruth!

  15. So many lovely roses! You make me want to plant more. I love the water lilies, too; there is something so beautiful and calming about these blooms floating peacefully on the water. Happy Bloom Day!

  16. Hi Nadezda!! It's me Ash!
    Oh my goodness!! I'm so glad I dropped by today. Your roses are gorgeous!!
    And you have a pond too with lillies?? You should be proud of your garden Nadezda, I envy you :)

    1. Yes. I have. It's a very big work, this pond. The water lilies need to be set down the pond bottom every autumn, to winter under the ice and in spring they have to be warmed in green house before they start to grow and bloom. Moreover the water gets dirty and I clean it every 2 weeks. Thank you for stopping by, Ash!

  17. Everything grows at the moment, it is a wilderness in my garden.

    Your garden always looks tidy and your plants are in perfect condition. You must spend many hours working. Your roses are splendid.
    I need to go out and do a lot of dead-heading, the first flush is over already and I need to make room for new blooms.

    Enjoy the summer and enjoy the garden. Do you spend any time just looking and sitting or do you work all the time? That’s the danger for us gardeners. Sometimes the summer passes and I’ve not even looked properly!

    1. In July I spend some hours sitting near the pond or a trellis with clematis that make a shadow. I do knitting or crochet some things that I won't never use.But these hours give me peace and quietness in these unbelievable days.

  19. Oooh, ‘Pristine’ is a lovely rose, but I absolutely love water lilies. I haven’t got a pond – nowhere to put it in my tiny garden, so I have to admire water lilies on other people’s blog. Yours are lovely! Thanks for the tour in your lovely July garden :-)

    1. Helene, the pond needs everyday care, it's a hard work to support the water, plants and nymphaea. Your garden is full of beautiful plants. Thank you!
