Happy Sunday!! It’s been way too long since I shared photos from my rose garden here on my blog! I hope you enjoy some pretties and that it brings you a spot of joy today!
I do share lots of my garden and rose photos on social media, but I realize not everyone follows me outside of my blog, so that’s why I decided to share a little today! The bouquet above was in my craft room (well, you can probably tell that). You’ll see a bouquet in the background of some of my crafting videos… I try to keep a bouquet from my rose garden in my craft room all the time. The colors and beauty inspire me and make me smile.
I know I inherited my love of gardening and roses from my mom… I just wish I could have appreciated her efforts more as a teenager at home. The Whiskey Mac rose was her favorite in her garden. After she passed away in 2006, we tried taking cuttings from her Whiskey Mac but I could never get them to root. In 2016, Eric found a cutting from a Whiskey Mac on ebay (of all places!) – it was only 12″ tall – and we planted it, and it’s taken several moves around the garden (it’s in a huge pot) but as you can see above, it’s now VERY happy!!
In my garden, I have 6 rose bushes and 7 Alstromeria. As you can see from the bouquet above, I love a variety of colors in my garden and in my bouquets.
Above: this is my bouquet this week. I love this pretty vase… it was from a grocery store!!!!
And lastly, just cuz I wanted to document this… we were so happy when a few of the restaurants finally opened around here (at 25% capacity) a couple weeks ago… this was our first meal out INSIDE a restaurant since March. Tacos de Costra for me and a Quesabirria for Eric, from Que Onda in Pinole. SUCH GOOD food and a great variety too!
Thanks for hanging out with me today. Hope you enjoyed the photos from my rose garden. Do you have a garden? What do you grow?

Good morning Patty,
Your garden is sooooooo beautiful…. I wish I had your green thumb… I love roses but your Whiskey MAC is beyond beautiful….I love the color so much…..How long did you keep it in a pot? How do you keep your roses looking so pretty? And they are so big…..I fertilize mine but they get black spots on one of mine…..I love seeing your garden….. Thanks for sharing….Happy Sunday to you and the family.
It’s still in a pot.. our earth here is so hard, like clay and not easy to grow roses in the ground always. 🙂
Your garden looks lovely. I also love my flower garden and have a love of gardening. Here in New York, I now will have to wait until spring to tend to my garden….(insert sad face). Enjoy your beautiful flowers.
I am blessed to garden year round here! Wishing you happiness this spring!!
Hi Patty, Thank you for sharing your garden. It is beautiful. I have a garden but since I live in deep south Texas in the Rio Grande Valley I have more drought tolerant plants like Desert Rose, Crown of Thorns, and several cactus and succulent varieties.
You’re flowers are always so beautiful and you arrange them so nicely! The colors and variety in each bouquet make me happy too! Also make me a bit jealous as we have a couple inches of snow here this morning (SD). Thanks for sharing!
Thank you!!! Wow.. snow.. stay warm!!!
Your flower garden is beautiful! I too lost my mom in 2006 and she was always fond of yellow roses. I have just recently tried my hand at growing roses. Do you have any particular hints for them to grow?
I fertilize them monthly and water every couple days. I think it’s also a matter of getting the right amount of sunlight and some shade. Mine are mostly southwest facing.
Your flowers are beautiful. You certainly have a green thumb. Thank you for sharing.
Absolutely gorgeous garden. You have it hands down being able to grow roses; this must not be my plant – your alstromeria are so pretty. Love love love the colors. We buy them at the grocery store and marvel what we can get. Love that they stay for a long period of time. I am into perennials. Live in the Dallas area so have to have plants that tolerate hot weather and then our fickle winters. During the pandemic(when everything was completed closed down) I worked everyday in the backyard. It was great therapy. Right now I have about 7 hanging baskets throughout the flower beds with pansies, kale, labellia, and alyssum. Into ornamental grasses, just planted 4 more. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous bouquets.
Yes, I love alstromeria for that fact that they can last 2 weeks in the vase!! Your garden sounds beautiful!
Lovely to see your beautiful garden! The roses are beautiful! :<) I remember talking with you about a love of English gardens and yours is so wonderful! It is 38 degrees here in WI and snow showers today, tonight and tomorrow. Want me to send you some? :<)
um, no thank you 🙂 but thanks for offering… LOL
Your flowers are phenomenal! They are so beautiful and cheerful. You have a real knack. Thanks for sharing!
Your roses are beautiful!
Your flowers are breath taking. Such a lovely combo of rich colors.
Patty, thanks for sharing your garden, it looks lovely, inviting and healthy. Green leaves, wow! My poor roses, the bushes used to look healthy, too many roots from the trees?
You shared roses and alstroemerias, my colors and favorites.
God bless you and our Country.
hmmm i never thought of that, but I guess it could be. Have you ever thought of growing them in pots? about 1/2 of mine are in big pots and pretty happy!
Wow your roses are just spectacular! And I have to say those tacos look pretty darn good! Boy your restaurant’s only just opened recently? Wow
Yes, 2 weeks ago the restaurants could open at 25% capacity. So only a couple of tables inside the smaller restaurants… very strange.. hope things truly open up soon.
Rose Garden is beautiful! Always love your cards too. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures and for sharing your wonderful garden today. It was so refreshing and I could almost smell the wonderful aroma!!!!
Thank you!!! Mom 2
Just love the beautiful bouquets you make from your rose garden. You must have the right climate to grow your flowers. I enjoy the pictures you send from your garden-no need to go to the florist!
Beautiful gardens, have you heard of David Austin Roses? They have mail ordered roses. Have a beautiful Sunday
No, I have not heard of that brand.. I’ll have to look them up!
Your flowers are stunning! Thank you for sharing some sunshine for us in Illinois. It’s 42 degrees and gloomy today. So glad we had sunshine yesterday. 🙂 I love your vintage vase / pitcher too!!!
thanks, I love that pitcher, too.. it’s been in the family over 100 years.
Thanks for sharing. My mother loved and also raised roses.
your roses are gorgeous they are my favorite
i, too have some of roses i have 2 of each of 5 colors
I love seeing your flowers, Patty! So pretty!
Ah! Your garden is beautiful and it is a delight to see your flowers! I understand going to a restaurant now! Keep safe! Our town is in the red because of a huge spike in Covid cases so once again I am staying close to home! Enjoy your outing!
Your roses are gorgeous! Thank you for all that you share!
Thank you so much for sharing your roses. I miss mine. I am 76 now and with my elderly years problems come, so no more gardening.
I could almost smell your wonderful flowers. Thank you for YOU!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful roses and flower garden with us again! I love flowers and always enjoy seeing your gorgeous garden and bouquets. It is cold and rainy right now where I live in Oklahoma. Today is our first freezing drizzle of the season, so I went out last night and picked the last of our tomatoes from the garden, plus a colorful bouquet of zinnias and cosmos, mostly pinks and purples left. We have some mums and marigolds blooming, also. My herb garden is glorious with the bright red blooms of pineapple sage, but I had to cover my basil with blankets until I can harvest it. It can not take any freezing temps. I’m a little behind on that, LOL! God Bless, Tina
Oh I am so jealous of those beautiful roses, My favorite flower. It has frozen here in Wisconsin already so everything has died. God Bless, June
OMG – THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your lovely flowers with all of us. It is a breath of fresh air here in Colorado this week between the fires & the snow & frigid temperatures. Wish my thumb was a green as yours!!! In a gardening kinda way. . . .
I would love to see your yard I bet it is beautiful. Thanks for sharing with me.
Your roses are beautiful. Mine are suffering some right now from lack of TLC. My husband tended to them until yard work got too much for him.
