May 2017 Garden

The fragrant classic, Mr. Lincoln

Dianthus and a small rose bush.

My 3rd year marigolds. I planted a pony pak in this hanging container back in 2015. last year & this year, they came back from self-seeding. There are some dozed or so growing in the ground also.

Two mini roses

The great Chrysler Imperial. It is always very fragrant.

Two ferns bundled up together. They came that way in the pot at the store.

Japanese Lace Fern

Climbing red rose that grew from the rootstock. Two of the horses in the background.

Pansies in a pot. Sword fern in the background.

Two rose bushes with pink roses.

My Velvet Rose, named because it looks like velvet. 

Multiflora and multi-colored, and very free blooming.
Fern Garden.

Both fern gardens.

Ember Serene

Photos taken 1992

Ember Serene was one of our first two Morgans. She was sired by Ember Medallion (Moro Hill Medallion x Caven-Glo Lisa, by Lippitt Moro Alert) and out of Rosemont Gay Bess (Moro Hill Gay Ethan x Kedron Betsy Ross, by McAllister). 
Foaled in 1976, we got her in 1980 as an unhandled 4 yr old. She was a good riding horse who had three chosen speeds--fast, faster, and Go-Like-Hell. This suited my husband just fine.
She had three foals: 1983-SSM Dream Fire, by Ember Ethan Dandy; 1988-SSM Bull Jerome, by Moro Hill's Micah; 1990-SSM Zebulon Bullrush, by Clarion of Quietude. Jerome was sold but we kept the other two until their deaths. 
She was a good horse & I miss her still.
