South wall of the house.The Fairy & Swany, 'ground-cover roses' were planted here. It was certainly planed they would trailed down, but they became climbing roses instead..
'Royal Bassino'- planted in 1998 - 'Vindkullen', Kordes ground-cover rose but it is rather taller.
It is hard to believe, but when I was young I did not like roses.. I found them steel and vain, boring perfect maybe. That was because I almost never could see a rose or rose bush in nature. I lived in a town of millions and I used to see roses only at florist´s. When I started with Yngves garden (see page Who Am I), I bought three first roses only because it was sale and I paid less than half of price. They were: 'Coral Dawn', 'Flammentanz' and Rosa alba 'Maiden´s Blush'. I had not a clue what kind of roses they were, not even that it WAS something like rose groups and how you treat and look after them. I´ve read only on the package how to plant them and that´s it. And I bought some other roses the same summer - mostly by chance.
A little later I have read some books about roses from the library, and when I saw pictures, I became more and more delighted in roses, specially when I saw first flowering bushes.. mostly in the Gothenburg Rosarium. I wanted to buy many of them and I learned much about roses, their attributes, what they need and how you grow them. So my adventure with roses started.. and by now there were 98 sorts of roses in the garden.
A little later other roses were bought too. It was 'Flammentanz' (was planted just under the balcony on the south site of the house and it has got some flowers, but it is no pic on it. Later it was moved to
'Rosarium' after it was ready), 'Heidelberg', 'Bonica',
'The Fairy'and 'Swany' - all were planted in the raised beds made of wooden boards around house walls. They were flowering the same year.
'Maiden´s Blush' was planted in the raised bed made of stones but it has no flowers that year. 'Westerland'and 'Aloha'andlater 'Raubritter' were planted in 'Rosarium'. 'Peace', 4 of them, were planted in the

ROSES 1997 - 1999
'Coral Dawn' - the first rose I have bought. It was no place to plant it! I put it into the larger pot and, to protect it from wind and frost in the winter, I placed the pot in the "Annex", next door to the greenhouse there it overwintered and has got its first flowers.

In the 1996 the most of roses were bought and planted, some of them were moved later to other places. Below you can see some of them which were planted in 1995 but had got no flowers then or I did not take any pictures of them. Click on the each pic to get it in the right size and more of them of the same rose, mostly together with other sorts, and description as well.

'Dr.Eckener' No2, left, planted in 1998 in the middle of the lawn. In the 1999 (on the pic) it has got the very long shoot which has not got any damages during the winter 1999/2000, grew much longer during the year 2000 and was not damaged either in the next, very malicious winter. On this shoot
'Dr.Eckener' put up ca 10 first flowers in July 2001.
In 'Rosarium' 'Handel' died in the early spring 1999 and 'Penelope' has been movedalready in the autumn 1998 to the brick container but she have not awaken in the spring 1999. Also
'Pascali' died about early spring 1998, destroyed probably by an unknown animal, so I bought 2 new 'Pascali' and I planted them in 'Buskage', together with a new Kordes rose 'Schwarze Madonna'. 'Heiderösslein' has been moved in late autumn 1998 to the large container I have built of stones after our neighbour blasted much of rocks to built a house.
Along The Road many other roses were planted 1996 and some of them 1997, but either they were not flowering or I have not taken pictures. They were: 'Lykkefund' (Rosa helenae improved), 'Compassion' - modern climber, 'Conrad Ferdinand Mayer' - R.rugosa hybrid, Rosa mulligani, 'Emelie' - modernclimber,
'Rugelda'- Rosa rugosa hybrid, planted in the spring 1998, first bloom October 1999
'Emelie'- modern climber, first bloom, Sept. 1998 (planted in June 1998 with Rosa mulligani)
modern climber, 1999 (planted in autumn 1997)
'Rosendorf Sparrieshoop'- modern climber, (planted in the autumn 1997)
'Dortmund'- modern climber, 1998 (planted in the autumn 1997)
'Comte de Chambord'- or
'Madame Boll' (planted in the spring 1999)
There were no more pictures of the other roes 'At The Road' in 1999. Rosa mulligani has not flowered yet, and other roses has been got single flowers from time to time and I have not much opportunity to shot them that time.
I have bought another 'Dr.Eckener' and planted it in the autumn 1998 in the middle of the lawn, in front of the entrance door to the house. This 'Doctor' is much better than that at the road. I waited two years for the first flower - but it was worth! Flowers are extremely beautiful and fragrance, I made a lot of pics, I hope they are nice! The pictures can be seen on the Page with 'Dr.Eckener'
All pictures on this Page and on almost on ALL my Pages and Sites were made with an ordinary camera, Minolta RIVA Zoom 70EX. Some of latest pictures (2001 summer) were made with my first digital camera, Olympus C-860L.

'Rosenstadt Zweibrücken'- modern bedrose (planted 1997)
Rosa arvensis, wild, planted on the Birch Hill prob.1998
planted in the wooden planter in the spring 1997
Rosa mulliganihas got a lot of flowers first time in 2002. Before they have been not many. The rose is growing behind 'Emeli' and could climb the shortened Pinus tree or oak. The rose shooting very long branches which need a support. But late Yngve's son together with his mother who are nowadays living in the house, fell down both trees. I do not know what happens with both climbers there, I have not allowed any access to the garden which I created myself during more that 10 years.
