Blooming Monday! What’s Blooming This Week In My Alabama Garden

Join us for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens

Shout out to Tom @ for encouraging me to grow ‘Buff Beauty” rose. It is featured in this clip and has been a great rose in my Alabama garden. Besides, anyone who wears kale on their head is a friend of mine……

    I appreciated the walk around your beautiful garden! Your heirloom amaryllis is stunning. Until recently I didn’t realize amaryllis would grow outside here. I also love the Buff Beauty rose, though all of your roses are wonderful and look so healthy! What do you spray them with?


    • I’ll bet your ears were burning this past week. Laura Brookhart was here to photograph our roses and we talked about your beautiful garden. Would love to your to stop by and see what’s blooming. I try not to spray if possible. Once established, most Austins and old garden roses don’t really require it. When I do spray I use Green Cure.

    What a lovely walk through your garden. It must be nice to be able to grow your amaryllis outdoors. They look so pretty. I enjoyed all of those beautiful yellow roses today Chris.
