Open Gardens

Thought I'd post a few photo's from the weekend. The Open Gardens cost $15 to tour, and bought in $12,000 for what is a rather small town. This first lot of photo's was taken at their Post Office garden, where they grew the biggest rose blooms that I think I've ever seen. The second photo is Double Delight but unfortunately the owner/gardener here couldn't name all of them for me. The rose in the third photo must have been a good 7 or 8 inches across. And all they did was put newspaper down, then weed mat, then the white pebbles, and water with a sprinkler, doing the lawn at the same time. Very sheltered, so surprising they didn't have black spot or powdery mildew.
