At the drawing board

I don’t know about you, but I really like seeing stuff on paper. Maybe it’s the old bookkeeper in me that makes me love a paper trail. Between laying out kitchens on paper and laying out gardens on paper, I’m not sure I could choose my favorite hobby… except that gardens are scarier. I definitely needed the surety and comfort of my paper garden before I could put the first spade in the ground in the front yard. I planned that garden with great trepidation. Measurements were taken and diligently transferred to graph paper. I own a quality artist’s eraser, because there’s always a lot of erasing involved. I like to be as precise and pretty about it as I can be. Once the drawing was done, my brain could wrap itself around it, left and right, up and down, and I could proceed without confusion and fear. It was all in my head – safe and secure.

Changing my garden is an equally nebulous and overly complicated task until I get it on paper. Having all these roses floating around in my head along with the places I thought they should occupy is very unsettling and accomplishes nothing and even causes delay and procrastination because of the uncertainty and disorder. So to paper I finally run. It’s my confident refuge, my two-dimensional filing system where all the odd pieces eventually do find their appointed places. Colored lead makes decisions final, and coded symbols defy the possibility of confusion. And, of course, erasers give assurance that decisions can be rethought and three-dimensional mistakes avoided.

The hardest part this time was deciding which roses would leave. There were really poorly performing roses that I love, and there were mediocre roses that I didn’t love but felt bad about rejecting. If you’re at all like me, you know the beloved roses win out which means the others become the losers even though there is strong sentiment on their side. Emotion!  Does it have to be part of every decision? Definitely, no. I have made some very cold, cut and dried decisions in this garden, but this remodeling is not like that. I had reduced my rose numbers to what I thought were a bare minimum that I was happy with - - and then bought more roses. Not the first time, and I doubt it will be the last. As it turns out, there are only six (or maybe five or four) leaving, and they will have a lovely new home. I wish they could have been beautiful here in my garden, but they weren’t and that’s that.


With the help of my rose-wise friend, Carol, who grows 900 roses, I have selected specific places in the ground and in pots for specific roses based on size and sun. Size is always iffy, and I always fudge on it. Like Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters trying to force their big, ugly feet into Cinderella’s tiny slipper, I’m just a-wishin’ and a-hopin’ these roses will fit. At the same time I’ve resigned myself to the roses running together somewhat with bush blending into bush. One day someone will say, “Oh, look. This bush has two colors on it”, but it will be two bushes reaching beyond their allotted space into their neighbor's space, creating a new rose bush. I figure that putting a five-foot diameter rose bush in a four-foot diameter space isn’t as bad as having one less rose bush, so I kid myself a little into thinking they’ll all fit fine… along with all the daylilies and all the coneflowers and all the coreopsis and all the dianthus. I can’t say no to me... or to one more rose.

The Dirt Pile was closed

That’s my very local source for gravel, topsoil, mulch, bulk potting soil, etc. Apparently, they took the long weekend off, because they were locked up tight when I went there Saturday morning. I needed good soil for the beds under and around ‘Francois Juranville’. Oh, well, I could still dig the holes, so after a quick trip to Lowe’s for cement edging I got started. Just to save on confusion the pertinent writing is under each photo.

 I more precisely scraped the gravel out of the way and set up the edging for the dry-fit, so to speak. Not rocket science but as precise as I can make it for the perfectionist in me.

You remember how the gravel path ran under the rebar arbor that ‘Francois Juranville’ lives on and that he’s planted to the left in the sun here. The shade bed is behind the bench. Do you see the shade line on the ground? In winter the back garden which is on the north side of the house is almost totally in shade. That is the shadow of the gable end of the house about twenty-five feet away. The sun is at such a low angle – and getting lower every day – that much of the shade bed and all of ‘Mrs B R Cant’ to the far left out of frame are in full sun, and she’s just as happy as a clam and blooming her heart out. Curious, isn’t it, how this earth of ours tilts this way and that way with the only giveaway being the shadows we cast.

 ‘Serratipetala’ in the rectangular pot was dragged inches at a time out of the way. As I was dragging his butt inch by inch I thought about finding him a better home than the one he has which isn’t entirely my fault... the home, I mean. He was only supposed to be three feet tall but grew almost six feet tall. Must be the vitamins in the Florida sun. But for sentimental reasons I have decided to keep him. The cool weather has caused him to be much leafier plus I’m just tired of getting rid of all of my original roses. I liked me back then – all doe-eyed and excited and driven to have roses, roses, roses... before I knew that all roses, roses, roses didn’t love my garden. Just some roses, roses, roses. The trick was to find which ones.

 Mmmm, I like it.

Now on to the digging. The place where my shovel is laying is the designated dumping zone for the excavated crappy soil coming out of the new bed, some of which I put there when it was the designated dumping zone for the crappy soil from the front garden as shown in the photo below. The exciting part is that I decided that this area would be graveled, too, and would make a lovely shady sitting area... in the summer, that is.

Step back in time to November 28, 2008, and this was the back garden, receptacle for six inches by twenty feet by fifteen feet (give or take) of limey sand with definite cementitious characteristics that formerly was the front yard. One wheelbarrow at a time. See how excited I was… Gee, what’s that green stuff all over the yard? Can’t remember. By the way not a single rose in this photo – except ‘Serratipetala’ in the rectangular pot is still there.

Dang that tree!! I wanted it out of there by now, but tree cutters who don’t show up when they say they will seem to be in control of my future. DH with the arthritic back that needs surgery and I with no umph or climbing ability surveyed the situation Saturday after the digging was done. We determined that if we were downing this tree it would come down right where the tailgate of the truck is between the two trees. In fact, one or both of those other two trees could come down as well. The left one, unfortunately, would take with it the canopy that ‘Francois Juranville’ planned to grow into, so that would be disappointing. Maybe the right one could go first, and then we could reassess. It was all I could do (what magnificent self-control!) not to say, “Can’t we do it now, Daddy, huh, huh, huh???”, but given the waning daylight and the presence of DH’s cane, I figured I would refrain from totally blowing every shred of my credibility in one fell swoop. I know DH expected me to blow it. However, neither of us showed our hands in this little game of ‘who’s not the mature one?’

 A wider view of the mess.

Here you can clearly see the stratification of the neo-paleolithic era created in the upheaval of three years ago along with the roots of that dang tree. I can’t decide if I want to put ‘Rose de Rescht’ here. May be too much sun in summer for his delicate dark red blooms, so I think he’ll stay in his pot and let daylilies live here. The dark layer of native soil underneath my sand isn’t really as fertile as it looks. It’s basically dark brown and sometimes black compacted something that resembles mortar mix and contains white limestone rocks. I am proud to say that I made the black friable layer of dirt on top which I’m thinking, i.e., hoping is much thicker in the middle of that bed. By the way the edging is laid over because I kept catching, er, slamming the shovel on them. Digging is a game of inches especially for klutzy people.
I do hope you’re finding these holes dug in the ground quite interesting! Otherwise, what’s the point of blogging about them except that I was knee-deep in sand and lived to tell about it.

Don’t you think a birdbath would be great on the gravel side of that curve? You won’t believe what I found at Lowe’s when I was getting the cement edging. Animal, vegetable or mineral, you ask. Well, of course, vegetable. A white hydrangea macrophylla. Alright, I’ll go outside… in the dark… and look at the label… with a flashlight. Be right back. It’s ‘Sister Therese’. Very beautiful pure white blooms. It will be going in this bed and will be surrounded by daylilies. The other vegetable was a burnt orange asiatic lily. The cashier says they “come back”, meaning live to bloom next year. I really hope she knows what she’s talking about since I heard they don’t.  But it’s loaded with flower buds so this year at least it will put on a show.

Notice something different?

Yes, I remembered to extend the half-inch poly and bury it before construction was finished. Too soon old, too late smart. Also, the present ugliness of the gravel paths will be remedied with a hard spray from the hose and a thin layer of new gravel. Aren't you glad? I sure am.

That was yesterday.

Today I took ‘Polonaise’ out of his blue patio pot and put him in the ground next to SdlM. No photos again since it was dark again. I also took ‘Baronne Prevost’ out of that spot in the ground and put her in the blue pot but not on the patio. Just like moving the furniture around. It’s been there a year… gotta move it.

I also redid my rose list today. The one I use to keep me sane, not the one on the blog. My personal list has crucial information on it like when I got the rose, where I got it from and where it is in the garden. It hadn’t been updated in quite a while as evidenced by the many cross-outs and penciled-in items. Getting that done got my brain in order to do the critical thinking required for determining which roses needed to be moved and where to, where the unplanted ones would be planted, which ones had to leave and where would they go. I’m happy to say that none will go to the city compost pile. All six will go to Rose Petals Nursery. Follow the link and you can read about ‘Souvenir de la Malmaison, Climbing’ and her relocation to her new home. See, all’s well that ends well.

November flush flushes on

This year the huge difference between the summer flushes and this November flush is leaves. They’re back!! And they’re beautiful. It may sound backwards, but to me leaves on a rose bush are the icing on the cake (buttercream is my yummy favorite). It’s not absurd to say that blooms are a dime a dozen, but leaves are precious after a dry Florida summer in which the bushes in my garden either couldn't or wouldn't grow leaves for weeks and weeks. Self-preservation?

I love the green stuff – leaves!

IMG_7517 (2)

'Hermosa', a China-Bourbon from 1840, is a consistent bloomer, and her smallish, globular flowers are a vivid lavender pink. Her leaves are lovely, but most of the summer she was decidedly underclothed.

I have three 'Hermosa' bushes planted together a la David Austin's custom of planting in threes for greater impact. Of course, in the United States where most climates are warmer than in England, most Austins as well as non-Austins give plenty of impact one at a time. 'Hermosa' in bloom is always a joyful sight, virtually eliminating her chances of ever being shovel-pruned.

You can see that the three 'Hermosa' plants are on the diminutive side - about 40 inches high by two feet wide late in the season. In the background 'Pinkie, Climbing' is a very bushy thing with one or two clusters of flowers. Not exactly an overwhelming fall flush. In the foreground 'Souvenir de Francois Gaulain' is loaded with buds as is 'Clotilde Soupert' to his right and below.

The lovely and fragrant 'Clotilde Soupert', a Polyantha-Tea from 1889, suffered not so silently through the summer, looking bare and sickly, but suddenly after another weekend not spent in the garden I found her lushly green and covered with buds. Going through my photos last night I was shocked to see that a month ago she was also covered with flowers. She's definitely a rapid rebloomer.

'Clotilde Soupert' with lots of buds and a few spent ones left. What a pleasant surprise to see her like this when I got home from the Marion County Rose Society meeting yesterday.

'White Maman Cochet' just doesn't stop. She's only been in the ground since March (remember the driveway bed?), so she's still gawky and somewhat lopsided from growing only in one or two directions - so far, but she's a serious bloomer. Just as the last batch of five or six have dropped their petals, her buds that have been in hiding burst open and take my breath away.

Now 'Madame Abel Chatenay' has been in bloom for a month or more. She's slowing down a bit now and has some new healthy foliage but not anywhere near as dense as I'm used to seeing on her. I'm pretty sure I'm going to move her this winter toward the house about four feet, re-amending her new and old spots. That will make room for another rose (maybe 'Starry Night') or lots of daylilies. It all depends on how much of that crappy, impenetrable native soil I can remove. It occurs to me that this 'lifting & re-amending' may be a triennial occurrence.

But she's worth it, don't you think?

'Le Vesuve', always thrilling to me.

You may doubt me, but this too is 'Le Vesuve'. As she ages, her blooms become very pale pink, almost white, making her a bush of many shades of pink.

'Souvenir de la Malmaison' - if I had to have only two roses...  no, three... there's no way I could only have two. Alas, there's no way I could only have ten. Hey, there's a post topic in that. Anyway, the two would be 'Souv de la Malmaison' and 'Le Vesuve'. But just so you know... it ain't happenin'.

The Encore azalea basks in the glory of 'Souv de la Malmaison' on the left and the right. Personally, I don't see how they can call it a summer blooming azalea or even a repeat bloomer, but at least it's not dead like the three others.

'Duquesa', the Tea rose from 2005, has been transformed from the summer bush that had such teensy pale flowers into the cool-weather heart-stopper with her large, flat, fragrant, peachy flowers, so well branched and foliated, as you can see below. She was planted a year ago this past September, and she's more than four feet by four feet.
'Sweet Chariot' is a miniature and a great rose. Her magenta pom-pom flowers are a delight, and she's quite healthy.

Oops, 'Le Vesuve' thinks it's been way too long since she was the center of attention and the topic of discussion.

Bush shots are so difficult. This photo is a horrible representation of this 'Clotilde Soupert'. Her many-petaled blooms just look like white blobs, and her foliage doesn't look nearly as well recovered from the dreadful summer as they do in person. I would have left out this photo, but I could not leave out this rose. Such a wonderful garden rose should not be overlooked in Florida. With a little more acidity in the soil she would be as happy as happy can be.

'Madame Lombard' plays tricks on the camera.  You'd think she were a mostly white rose, but she's far from it. This photo does, however, show the sticky-ness of a young Tea rose. She's not a mass of leaves yet, just a few twiggy canes with little tufts of flowers and leaves at their tops.

Mme Lombard's flowers are shades of deep pink and very variable. She was bred in 1878 and arrived in my garden a year ago last month.

She can rightly brag about her gorgeous blooms, and this time next year she'll probably have some heft to back it up. I recently was reminded just how large she will be.

Right now she's throwing canes wide and low and taller, too. She could easily get to eight feet tall and almost as wide, but it's the width that unnerves me.

This camera simply can not get a handle on 'Madame Lombard'. Today she was a deeper rose color to my eye that this photo shows.

Here's a whole bush shot. The recurve of her petals must reflect light funny, so that the camera sees white instead of pink. Can you find where she begins and ends? If you ran a line from left to right from the faded clematis on the tuteur, that would be the back edge of ML. See the blue flowers? That's the plumbago. Mme Lombard probably has extended her canes into Mr. Plumbago's territory, and since I'm standing in my neighbor's yard to take this picture, you can figure ML will be gracing Linda with her presence pretty soon. The space allotted to this rose was six by six. Can you hear 'Madame Lombard' laughing at me?

Updated daylilies with photos

In trying to get my list of daylilies complete and their colors, heights, season, etc. straight so I can be organized and plant them in the best places for making the garden beautiful I finally got all of them and their attributes together in one document.
