Ahhh Friday, that final day of the work week and the anticipation of the weekend! After a very hectic week that included at least 10 meetings, a wedding and a funeral; i’m glad to see Friday arrive.
We are seeing some of the most vibrant blooms of the year and I thought i’d share this shot of ‘Artistry’ hybrid tea from our garden. This is an exceptional rose in every way. Tons of blooms, good disease resistance and holds its shape well.

What a beautiful shot of your garden retreat. With a week like you have had, I think you deserve some extra relaxing garden time this weekend.
Thanks Elena. Spent the afternoon in the garden. Planted a new rose ‘Fame’ HT. Do you grow this rose?
No, I do not grow that one. It is a beauty however.
Love your garden!
That’s a beautiful rose. I like the red roses and the bench in the background, too.
Thank you. The roses in the background are Sentimental a floribunda. The bench is a favorite also!
With a week like that, enjoying the garden is time well spent. Gorgeous flower. Hope this week is less hectic for you.
