Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day May 2017


Dear readers,
This is the second time that I participate in Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day hosted by Carol from May Dreams Gardens and I am happy to share some pictures from my garden with you today.
I am so glad the weather has finally become warmer and sunnier. Since I love roses and peonies, May and June are my favourite times in the garden. Last week the first rose opened its buds and since then gradually more and more roses have shown their beautiful blooms. Today , among other plants, I´d like to share some pictures of the roses in my garden and would also like to proudly share with you some pictures showing how my rose cuttings from last year are doing. I am looking forward to the beautiful garden pictures you share on Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day!
Have a happy sunny week, enjoying your gardens!
Best wishes,

Lisa

Last year I tried myself in propagating roses through cuttings. Some cuttings were successful and developed into little roses that even have buds now. I am so happy to see them thrive and can´t wait to see in what colours they will bloom as I can´t remember which cutting is from which rose. I always find myself looking at the buds, seeing wether they reveal some spark of colour already.




As you can see this rose has developed into quite a large plant already and I counted 11 buds. Isn´t that amazing?!


This rose got many buds too and has also a very nice bushy growth.




I am so happy that I now also have a self-propagated moss rose as moss roses are said to be difficult to be propagated through cuttings. The bud shows some pink colour, which I am very delighted about as I love pink roses. Can´t wait for it to finally bloom.

  1. Lovely roses. I think you must be much warmer than here. Dahlias have a long way to go yet.

    1. Hi Steve, thanks for visiting my blog! The Dahlias I bought at a garden centre, which explains why they are already blooming. I also planted some Dahlia tubers, which will need quite a time till they look like the ones I bought.
      Best wishes,

  2. Congratulations on your great rose propagating skills. Your roses and other flowers are beautiful. The weather here is still colder than usual with a lot of rain and our roses have just started to show color in the buds. Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

    1. Dear Hetty,
      well, I must admit that I also had many cuttings that failed as they easily rott instead of producing roots. Nevertheless, I am super happy that some of them developed that well. If you are interested in doing your own cuttings you might want to read my post in which I explained how I made the cuttings.
      Best wishes,
      Lisa
