Evelyn Castro-Lake shared these wonderful images of her cottage-style garden in north-west Illinois. Her garden is full of classic garden divas like roses and lilies, but she chooses tough, diseases resistance varieties that thrive in her conditions without the need for sprays.
The roses she primarily plants are from the Canadian explorer series: ‘William Baffin’ (fuschia, on the left) and ‘John Davis’ (pink, on the right) along with a climbing miniature rose ‘Jeanne Lejoie’ (pink, on the left.)
