"Queen Elizabeth"

We're pretty certain this rose is called "Queen Elizabeth" ... this is the first rose from this particular small bush which has grown from a cutting ... the first of many, we hope 8) But thought it looked beautiful here with the pink geraniums and orange "chinese lantern" abutilons ...

Nice combinations, Lea, and so tidy for a lovely bushy garden. :D Those Chinese Lanterns really grow well for you, too! Now, is it just my computer, or is the house behind really pink? :?

Thank you, Luzy :lol: Especially for saying it looks neat ... we've planted and nurtured so much, sometimes we think it's a little messy ... but messy in a good, "Botanic Garden" type of way ;) I'd like to do the edges with a spade so it would look really neat ;)

Yes, I love Abutilon Chinese Lanterns ... they do grow really well, look so lush all year, and flower for most of the year too ... and the nectar eating birds really love them (Y) We sit there and relax and watch the Australian Miner Birds, including the Bell Miners, hang upside down and eat the nectar from the flowers ... and lately we're being visited by an Eastern Spinebill who does this too, and looks just like a little hummingbird 8)

:lol: Haha, no, the house isn't pink, the bricks are dark brown and orange ... it's funny that they look pink to you :lol: Isn't it funny, the differences in colours in different computer screens?
