Today we’re in Weymouth, Massachusetts, enjoying photos from Joan Cogliano’s garden from last summer.
The classic climbing rose, ‘New Dawn’, has blush-pink blooms that repeat all summer on a nicely disease-resistant plant.
A shorter-growing rose, ‘Apricot Drift’, blooms next to a clump of catmint (Nepeta × faassenii, Zones 3–8).
A beautiful climbing rose called ‘Alchemist’, with large, fragrant, romantic blooms is nestled among Clematis buds promising to add to the beauty soon.
In this exquisite bouquet from the garden, many roses are combined with the intricate, blue flower of love-in-a-mist (Nigella damascena, annual) in the middle.
Iceland poppies (Papaver hybrids, Zones 3–6 or as a cool-season annual) in a shade of delicate pink add to the display. These poppies make beautiful cut flowers. Though technically perennials, they usually perform best when grown as a cool-season annual.
More Iceland poppies are joined by a lovely viola (Viola × wittrockiana), another cool-season annual that can make a surprisingly good cut flower.
Out in the garden, pink peonies (Paeonia hybrid, Zones 3–8) bloom in front of a blue piece of glass garden art.
An arrangement like this is a wonderful way to enjoy everything blooming in your garden.
