Art me in the Garden- My Garden Seems to think it's June!

As promised here are pictures of my garden.  Since there are SO many, I'll just write captions- as I don't want folks to run in "horror" when they see my garden posts.  I also included a picture of my new WIP since it's from my garden as well, tho' from last year :)
This is probably my favorite rose; "Jude the Obscure"  here it looks bright yellow but it's really more of a kind of Sunset yellow.....
" Jude the Obscure" up close.......
 My foxgloves in all their glory

 This rose is "Cinco de Mayo" it's really cool- it starts as a deep watermelon-y red and fades to vairous shades of lavender, maybe *it's* my favorite......
 
 front entrance to the garden with nasturtium, Chinese foxglove, coral bells, foxglove, delphinium and more....
 Entrance to the back garden.....

 My arbor might be my favorite part of the garden right now......
 Iris, "Merlot" 


And finally, my new WIP from my "Perle d'Or" the rose on my mailbox.  Sorry it's so dark, Picasa wouldn't let me load these, so I had to add them un-edited ;)  I'll be adding color tomorrow and working on it to have something for Paint Party Friday.
Have a great day!

I'm officially jealous. It was 25 degrees when I woke up this morning. Not a flower blooming.

Your garden is georgeous! What a lift to my spirit to see it. Thanks for sharing what YOU see daily...while I await warmer temps and buds to bloom. That should be at the end of the month, but I live at 8,000' in CO.

Hugs
Jan

I'm so jealous! Our Michigan weather has been so crummy my garden is a soggy mess and at least a month behind you in bloom time. Your garden is beautiful! I love your arbor too!

OMG! I can't believe your garden. It is beyond beautiful. I'm so impressed and the landscaping is beyond belief. You have such a great eye for putting flowers together to make them look natural. I haven't even started my veggie garden, yet. My perennials are wild and obscene. Your plants all seem to have a purpose. So awesome.
