GTS angel face and spuds

Sunday again, our roses are blooming like crazy. This lavendar bloom is called
'Angel Face.' It is one of my favorites. It is also a small plant that is struggling, next to some giant rose bushes. I have been nursing it along, and need to come up with a better place for it, perhaps.
I also wanted to show off a bit - my potatoes are growing 'great guns' as they say.

I'll bet you are jealous of my classy cinderblock look, eh? They are functional if not beautiful. I have them around the potatoes, and plan to add more compost and straw (free straw! somebody dumped two bales at the back of our property!) as the plants continue to grow, and use the cinder blocks to help keep everything in place. The corn is doing ok, it is about 3 feet tall. You can see it behind the potatoes.
Happy GTS!

The lavendar rose is beautiful, but for some reason, I just can't imagine roses as lavendar. It doesn't seem natural. I think it may be because I never saw a lavendar rose until I was an adult.
Happy GTS,

Yeah,it is an odd color. I love the sweet way the rose is shaped, and I have a daughter who loves lavendar, so now I love it, too!

Your rose is beautiful! I love that color.
And your potatoes far better than mine (too much rain followed by a hars sudden sun, and they did boil...)
