Belinda’s Dream Blooms
Since our yard is so shady for most of the year, my lone Belinda’s Dream rose bush doesn’t get enough sun to be a prolific bloomer. But after a winter without leaves hiding the light, she gives one beautiful show every spring.
I used a few sprigs of two of my favorite evergreen shrubs to fill in and hold the blooms in place: lorapetalum (reddish-purple leaves) and elaeagnus (silvery leaves).
Photography notes: I took these on a morning that was oscillating between overcast and sunny, so the lighting kept changing. I think the warmth and depth of the sunniest shots are my favorites.
If I had more sun, I would plant more Belinda’s Dream roses. You can read a little more about them here.
