Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New England "Living" Show House at Juniper Hill Inn, Windsor, Vermont

The Juniper Hill Inn in Windsor, Vermont is playing host to the New England Show House. I had a chance to visit it Saturday and have a tour guided by one of the owners who was very knowledgeable of all the decorators' touches in each of the rooms. I couldn't take photos inside but was allowed to photograph the gardens outside which have been landscaped by the owners.

For more information about this show house visit their website which does have a few photos of the interior posted.
This side of the house used to have the carriage entrance. Now it leads to a patio and gardens.

The gardens were fragrant with roses of which I couldn't identify the type.


Below a lovely vista of Lake Runnymeade. It earlier times Mt. Ascutney was visible but then there were no trees blocking the view.












There was an assortment of garden art through out to catch your eye.





Above left is the rose in a close up. Who can identify it for me?

I don't know how I missed this post. What a beautiful place. I wish I could tell you the name of the rose - it's a beauty. Sorry, but not off the top of my head. I'll try and see if I can come up with some possibilities for you, though.

Great garden pics. I could be mistaken, but looking at the leaves and the rose shape, it might be Hansa, a very hardy and highly scented rose. Hope this helps.

is it fragrant? that mystery rose looks like a ragusa to me, but the name of it - i'm hoping HolleyGarden can help. Thanks for coming over & commenting for Cottage Flora Thursday's. Wanted to tell you that if you sprinkle alfalfa (can grab a box from your local garden store) around your heuchera it will flourish. it's the key secret to those plants! xoox
