I know, this sounds rather indecent, but honestly it isn't :o). People who are addicted to clematis and roses are humorously called Cleorotiker. Well, looking at my garden I probably should be called a Clerohydpeoniker (=Clematis, Roses, Hydranges and Peonies addicted). But today I just take you on a walk through my clematis and rose garden. Follow me!

One of my favourite David Austin roses is The Lady's Blush. She's not just a beauty but very healthy and grows rapidly.
Harlow Carr. We two haven't fallen in love yet, because...
... it is only lovely to look at, when you stand below it. Its shots are two weak for the flowers and so they all hang down... but I potted it only last year so our love can grow and get stronger :o).
A very healthy rose is the Rose de Resht. As you may know meanwhile, I don't use pesticides, not even biological once, and Rose de Resht doesn't seem to matter. She flowers every year and grows wonderfully.
Mme Hardy with her jealously green heart.
Another one of my darlings: Duc de Guiche.
The Duc is absolutely no wimp. He's satisfied with a place in the penumbra.
Francis E. Lester just jumped into my shopping cart while I was in Ettenbühl. He's got a hard job to do: I waited for 8 years that rose New Dawn would climb up my Rose Arch, but it didn't and I'm fed up. So I planted now Francis beside it and I hope he's going to show New Dawn what a real climber is.
Ups, a No-Rose-Photo has sneaked into this post. But Allium at the End of June I just had to show you.
The owl made by Chacheli-Macheri has now received lovely company. It just looks great together with the rose Munstead Wood.
Wild Eve from David Austin smells gorgeous and she behaves very well despite her name.
Absolutely gorgeous for me this year was the rose Scarman Himalayan Musk. Sadly her season for this year is nearly over.
And here a Close-Up from it. Its fragrance is just unbelievable lovely. If you've got a free tree or an empty wall, just plant it, you won't regret it.
Paul Noel as rose tree.
At his feet grows little Grace from David Austin, it smells also wonderful. Beside Grace at the right side grows an Indigofera.
Rose Ispahan, it's a damascena rose with a lovely fragrance.
I just can't remember the name of this very dark blue clematis, but I like it together with the geranium.
The monster is back! Hurra!!! I already believed it dead after the two last winter, which were very freezing, but it just showed me otherwise. It still will need a lot of time to get like this again:
This is the monster alias Paul Transon in a Close-Up.
Even when it is a long, long, very loooooong way for Pauli to go along, he has started. Hurraaaa!
Oh well, my tomcat doesn't look so pitiful because of the dirty windows. No, well maybe a little bit too, but the main reason is the ugly rain outside (so I'm not that stupid to clean the window because Noah would just love to decorate it again afterwards).
And I dared to make first a photo instead of opening the door immediately. How does it happen that the cats always seem to sit on the wrong side of the door ? Well, I hope that this didn't happen to you too and that you sit on the right side of the door, I mean in the warm and in a snuggling place for the weekend.
Habt es fein / Have a great time
