Garden Pony (Doozey), some spectacular roses, and Moms Amaryllis!

Look at this!!! Mom and I went out to a garden center yesterday and found these unbelievable roses, labelled GOLD METAL. They start out like yellow tea roses and as they open they get lighter, but they do it in a sort of clumping fashion where you see them at all levels of opening up! WOW! I am still recovering from shock after seeing these!!!



Here is Moms Amaryllis...all in the pot are open and I say they are in a fairy ring! They must like crowded roots, cause this pot is busting open! They must get divided this year, without fail. Are they not gorgeous?????

And last, but not least...my little garden pony, Doozey....covered with hitchhikers! (Click on photo to see better). She was really bothered by them being on her, so I picked them all off (quite a job, I tell ya)...I'm not sure if they are toxic to animals, or not...so just played it safe! My little dolly doggie is # 1. I love her so....

That rose is unusual. The amarylis are beautiful. What a pot full. Poor Doozy. Did he walk through some sticktights or something like that?

Those roses are friggen gorgeous! Doozey is adorable as always. BTW I did a 'Mega Post' a few days ago about my Adenium arabicum. Just in case you missed it they are adorable. :) I can't get over those roses, they're the nicest I've seen in a quite while.

Wow! The Gold Metal roses and your mom's "fairy ring" of amaryllis are fantastic. Can't stop looking at the photos.

Your little dolly doggie #1 is so cute and I'm glad you're so good to him.
