Blooms in Grace Gardens in June.
This clematis 'The President' is blooming out near the horse corrals now and
all the roses in the same bed.
A view in the front garden
'Husker Red' penstemon- I love this plant!
The Syringa (Idaho's state flower) otherwise known as Mock Orange has almost finished
it's bloom for the year.

Under the Red Jade crabapple blooms half of a John Cabot rose.
I'm surprised at how much this rose tolerates shade. A lot of this rose is under the tree and
gets a little sun in the morning and yet it blooms so well.
Another view from under the crab apple shows a few more blooms in a bed
in the front of the garden.
You can see the weeping limbs of the Red Jade which becomes a large
wide canopy of green and covers much of the front bed.
I totally redid this bed last year and I'm so glad I did. It is lovely now.
Half-way along this bed is a large arbor covered with a riverbank grape vine.
North of the arbor, this long bed continues and it is in full sun so this is where
many of the roses reside.
There are John Cabot (in the foreground of this photo) roses, William Baffin (in the background),
a few Morden Blush, Bonica, and many more.
This bed is about 100' feet long and is a barrier
from the busy highway we live along. The house sits back from the road
about 100' so there are many flower beds between.
It makes a wonderful buffer from road noise and gives us lots of privacy.

I think I'm going to really like this rose!
