A perfect rose bloom

We’re already in September, approaching the autumn season, and for the next two or three months all the flowers will still stay in full bloom in central Florida.

Over the last few days I planted several seeds of basil, nasturtium, French marigolds and sunflowers. And now, while I’m anxiously awaiting for the new plants to sprout, I am enjoying everything else that’s thriving around my house.

A few days ago, I experienced one of the prime displays of three of my rose bushes – and found some perfect blooms. I was taking photos for a while – and managed to get some really nice shots.

The first perfect rose bloom is the last rose bush I planted this season – my white carpet rose. It didn’t grow as much as I expected but it produced a few gorgeous blooms – with divine smell.

The second one is my Cinco de Mayo red rose. This rose bush is full of surprises. Besides blooming all season long and not being fussy at all – its blooms can be from single – to fully double with many petals. Of course, the more petals its bloom has, the stronger it’s scent.

The last one is my Barbra Streisand hybrid rose bush that has been with me for about four years or so. It was always doing OK, some seasons more blooms than others, no more than one at the time. But this year, it simply outperformed itself to my utmost amazement. For the first time ever, I have enough rose buds in my yard that I can cut some for vases.

Needs more plant food. Not too much more. Up the dosage a little bit at a time. Try Ortho, Miracle Grow, Bayer, and maybe add a layer of top soil.
