  1. rugosa?

  2. Lovely flowers. Very well photographed and presented. ~ cheers! ~ bangchik

  3. Wiseacre, it is Rosa ‘Schoener’s Nutkana’. This is a cross between Rosa nutkana (a CA native) and Paul Neyron rose, created by Georg Schoener in the 1930s. It is nearly thornless, sprawling and about 5 ft. tall.

  4. Bangchik and Kakdah – exciting to hear from someone so far away. Thanks for the compliment. Keep gardening and blogging – your blog is wonderful!

  5. These images are very good, but the first one is…mezmerising. Pink on pink. Love it!

  6. Thank you. It is a relatively small patch of clarkias. I got down low and shot up into the afternoon sun. It did capture the delicacy of the flowers.

  7. I’m glad you told what plant it is, clarkia! I remember our NW garden guru Ed Hume recommended it to us when we visited his garden. I certainly need to plant clarkia in my garden. I am sure deers wont’t touch it. I just found out that they ate Mr.Lincoln rose’ tops and strawberries tops!
