Jocelyn (Lili) Alexander of Wildcat Mountain Farm and Peggy Arundel of Merry Oak Farm plan to open their homes as part of the driving and shuttling garden tour.
Kimberly Wright, chairwoman of the Warrenton Garden Club’s historic garden tour, likes to say that this year’s event on May 1 to 2 “has something for everyone” at each of the four featured local properties. “There’s architectural interest, gardening interest, historical interest,” she said. “Each house really does have a unique offering.” The Warrenton tour is one of many held around the state during Historic Garden Week, April 27 to May 4, organized by the Garden Club of Virginia. It’s the oldest and largest house and garden tour in the nation. Wright said more than 1,000 visitors are expected for this year’s Warrenton tour “and it’s not just locals.

Royal Wedding Flowers: the Kent brides - Royal Central
And just to make this an even more perfect choice, in the language of flowers so beloved by Queen Victoria, a bridal rose means happy love.

On 24th April 1963, Princess Alexandra of Kent married Angus Ogilvy at Westminster Abbey with a retinue of royal guests in attendance. The bride chose a small bouquet of spring flowers which included camellias and jasmine. In the language of flowers, camellias signify admiration while jasmine means contentment.

Lady Helen Windsor, who married Timothy Taylor on July 18th 1992 at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, was an unusual royal bride. She opted for pastel shades for her flowers rather than the more traditional whites and creams. The end result was a pretty posy of pink roses, cornflowers and lavender. In the language of flowers, pink roses mean grace and joy while lavender symbolises devotion.
Interestingly, Lady Gabriella Windsor was a bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin, Lady Helen, and wore a garland of country garden flowers in white and blue in her hair and carried a posy in similar shades. Whether that, or any of the Kent wedding bouquets, will influence her own choice remains to be seen. All will be revealed in May when a new chapter in the history of Kent royal brides is written.

(Not necessarily) the last rose of summer
Vivid yellow-orange.• Prairie Joy: Medium pink. Good hedge rose.• Prairie Snowdrift: Creamy white.• Winnipeg Parks: Medium red.• Alexander Mackenzie: Deep red.• Champlain: Dark red.• J.P. Connell: Lemon yellow.• John Cabot: Medium red.• John Davis: Medium pink.• Quadra: Dark red.• Pavement series: Purple, scarlet, white types.• Henry Kelsey: Rosy-red. One of the best climbers.• William Baffin: Rose-pink. Excellent climber.• Ramblin' Red: Red climber.Fall pruning tipsMost rose authorities and research universities recommend against fall pruning of roses, as they tend to survive winter better with all canes intact. In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.
