GBBD in August

This Garden Blogger Bloom Day is full of roses. Days are still very warm, severe thunderstorms were yesterday and today. The temperature dropped a little, but we are still in summer, autumn has not come. Usually autumn comes in late August or September here.
Days became shorter and nights are already very dark

I have to turn on the lights in the garden and the porch in the evenings. White roses beautifully looked at night in the dark.
Every morning I walk around the garden, I greet my roses, tear the faded flower buds
off, tie the long branches, take in hand the large flowers and sniff. Perhaps this is a therapy in my life, such complicated and unpredictable.

Here are some of my garden roses, different in shape and color:

rose Folklore

rose Golden showers

  rose The Fairy

rose Boys' brigade

rose Margaret Merrill

rose Pristine

rose The pride of England 

rose Red cover


rose Red velvet

I am pleased that many varieties of my roses are tolerate well of rain. There are the roses which flower buds were covered with spots of rain drops, but the flowers are well kept and do not wilt.  
But branches of rose Red cover are too thin and have a lot of buds, so all flowers were lying on the ground after a rain. Yesterday I put a support and tied its branches to it. 
Roses Yellow showers and Pristine have very strong stems and don't bend from the strong wind during a thunderstorm and buds don't fall down. 

What a wonderful days in summer! 
Flowers are in bloom, 
veggies ripen, 
weeds grow, 
the weather is hot and the water in tanks is enough.

What about your summer days? Your garden?

  4. We are looking for more climbing roses for out garden. We gave Golden Showers, Compassion, White Clod and a red rose that I think is Josephine Bruce. Is Boy's brigade perfumed and disease resistant as we are looking for red/yellow/orange for one fence.

    1. I recommend you Boys' brigade, Sue. It's very disease and cold resistant and I also like that the faded buds fall down themselves and it looks nice all the time.
      Thank you!

    2. I wonder if it has a different name here as I can't find it at all on the internet.

  5. What an absolutely gorgeous selection of roses, Nadezda! Rose Red Cover is very striking. I've been introducing roses into my garden over the last few years and can't get enough of them now.

    1. This rose Red Cover is new in my garden, it wintered once and successfully, that is very important in our cold climate. It blooms with many bright red flowers about 2 months non-stop. Thank you Paula!

  11. It sounds like you are having a great summer, your roses are certainly enjoying it! I'd like to get The Fairy because it's nice for picking. It's winter here so I'm picking hellebores and daphne... spring and summer are just around the corner though!

  12. Hi Nadeza, Thank you for visiting my blog, A New England Flowerbed. It's nice to meet you :)You're roses are amazing! I love Pristine.......roses are so special. Although I love them, I have been reluctant to grow them because they can be difficult......as I read more and more blogs, I realized that is pretty much a thing of the past. I have 3 rose bushes and 1 climber that I planted this year. I hope they become as beautiful as yours!

  15. Your roses are very beautiful. They must look gorgeous in your home. I used to have The Fairy years ago in my yard but too many trees grew up and now she is gone. It is funny to think, in a way, that I had The Fairy here in the Deep South of the USA and that you have it in St Petersburg, so far away.

  17. Wonderful roses but I like the yellow one for the most!
    Summer has been hot, in July and in August at least. As you remember, June was cold for both of us. Too cold, I would say. Now it is turning more hectic - with strong winds and occasional showers with thunder. And I can sense autumn coming, which is bit sad.

    1. Oh, yes Tistou! Summer goes away and autumn is in a corner. It's sad, but every season is beautiful. I think my roses as usual will bloom until frost...
      Thank you!
