I see the "R" are up. Lovely roses and ruddies. My red climber is 30 years old and doing great. The others are all newbies. Only 7 years old.

The rose was one I picked up at Home Depot. They called it 'Oh Canada.'

Nice to see the robin included - they are so much a part of our gardens.

Both roses were photographed in Mississauga Gardens last October.

It is nice to see a Robin with the R's!. Our neighbor saw one a couple of weeks ago. Poor things will be so inundated with snow around here.

Our R's start with Rheum(aka Rhubarb)...a big leaf from a past season.

Roses will be well represented, no doubt

One final R....Rhododendrons(no surprise)
One we like to call 'Ruby Lemon'

Check the link for more....this was truncated for some reason.

I knew there would be some gorgeous R's and there sure are. Sharon, your link just takes me to photo bucket, not to your Rhodie's. Love that ruby lemon.
I too have a Rhododendron I don't know the name but got from Sharon.

I also have roses this is Dorothy Perkins (pink) with a darker rambler. These are heritages roses.

and of course I always have to show my rudbeckias, always a new variation each year as they cross pollinate.

Hi Betty:
You can name your rhodie to suit yourself.
I think I fixed the link....the post mode has been causing me grief today for some reason.
Every once in awhile it seems to truncate URLs. I'll put it here again and see what happens.
