More on Joseph’s Coat

gardening, Joseph’s Coat, quilts

Got a little more done on this one yesterday.


I just love these colors.  Even though it was a pain in the you know what at times with trying to arrange color.  Most of us do not have wall space for designing super big quilts and I had to keep laying each row out on the floor and standing back and looking at it – sometimes by standing on a stool and looking down – but it was worth it in the end.


I am getting a couple more roses blooming here and there.  I’m really kind  of surprised that these made it through the drought ok so far.  I really did neglect them and wasn’t thinking to try to water.  I have two pinks on this end of the garden and two red rose bushes by the deck.  There are two old fashion coral looking plants that are kind of wild that I neglected too.  One is far from the house and I never do anything with it.  I haven’t a clue if that one will come back next year.


These are buds on my oldest bush – a red rose that has long stems.  I think it is a Lincoln but I’m not sure.  I planted it about 28 years or so ago.  It has gotten moved at least two times over the years but always comes back.  I normally get buds up to Thanksgiving and a year or two at Christmas.


(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    A Mr. Lincoln rose smells absolutely delightful with a strong sweet fragrance and is a deep red, rather that a clear red. We had one in MO and we left it. I bought one at Lowe’s that ‘said’ on the label it was a Mr. Lincoln, but it has a single petal blossom and no fragrance. I threaten every year to rip it out and this may be the fall I do it!!!

    I enjoy seeing your flowers on your blog AND your quilting.

    I would never have known the back of your Joseph’s Coat was anything but pure white!
