May is the month of roses here in the Rosehaven Cottage gardens, particularly in the front garden where most of the rosebushes reside. Over the next couple of posts, let me take you on a photographic tour of our front gardens in all their May splendor. All the color makes this one of my favorite times of the year.Above: Oreo, the garden kitty, sits on the stepping stone path between the My Fifi rose (left) and the Cherry Parfait rose (right).
Above: The Irish Creme rose is a rose that loves cooler temperatures so it does better in the shadier part of the front garden.
Above: This lovely rose lost its name tag, and I have been unable to reidentify it properly. Anyone recognize it? It looks a lot like my Angel Face rose that it the same age but not as ruffly. I think it had something like "mystic" in the name. Above: The Gold Medal rose seems to glow in the sunlight.
