Garden, Roses, and Blogs!

It could the tittle of a song, or of a book, or of a movie.... but no!
it's just a little post in a little blog!
 ça  pourrait être le titre d'une chanson, ou d'un livre, ou d'un film .... mais non!
c'est juste un petit post dans un petit blog!

FIRST: Garden!
Some pictures of my garden: not a "clean" garden without unwanted weeds, no, no! it's more and more a free garden, where the plants can grow up as they like and .... as they can!
It's Sam's Garden and it is like him....
 Quelques photos de mon jardin: pas un jardin «clean» sans mauvaises herbes indésirables, non, non! c'est de plus en plus un jardin libre, où les plantes peuvent grandir comme elles aiment  et comme elles peuvent!
C'est le jardin de Sam et il lui ressemble!

SECOND: Roses !
The Garden is full of rose-trees, I think that it could be actually over 200, but I've stop to count them!
I have some Modern roses( very few!) and a lot of Ancient and Botanic Roses....
No "English Roses", because they don't exist ! (The only ones who are called like that are only Modern roses! The only ones which could be named like that are some Hybrids of Moshata created in the beginning of XX by the Reverend Pemberton in England...)

Le jardin est plein de rosiers, je pense que cela pourrait être en fait plus de 200, mais j'ai arrêter de les compter!
J'ai des roses modernes (très peu!) Et un beaucoup de Roses anciennes et botaniques ...
Pas de "Roses Anglaises", parce qu'elles n'existent pas! (Ceux qui sont appelés comme ça ne sont que des roses modernes! Les seuls qui pourraient être nommées comme ça sont des hybrides de Moschata créés dans le début du XXe Century par le révérend Pemberton en Angleterre....)

THIRD: Blogs!
I've always thought that it could be nice and interesting to give here  some light on some of the blogs of the followers of mine...
It's difficult to choose because you're a lot, and each one is interesting!
I'll begin the review with the faithful members (better to say: "friends" ?) who often post comments:

Special Mentions for Paul (Paul's Bods) and Peter (Peter's Cave) who were the most important friends who pushed me forwards in the Hobby! Their blogs are very interesting and different: I can't imagine that some of you ignore them!

Then the "Blog-Busters" who are Fran( The Angry Lurker)  and Ray ( Don't throw a 1) : it's not necessary to do a presentation!

Many thanks  to
Bruno (Lonewolf's Welten)  beautiful blog with beautiful figures and beautiful photos... and a very nice man!

Michele (Michigentile's MicroWorld) a newbie in the Blog's World but a genius dio-maker!
Scott  (I LIKE the things I LIKE!) I like the things HE like! creation with 54mm figures! so funny that you must read the blog each morning  before going to work!

french blogger and very good painter, creator of buildings, bases, etc...;

The young but promising Gowan ( Gowan's 1/72 scale models)
he create his own "play-alone" game and it's very interesting !
Jay (Jay's Miniature Enterprises)  I can't describe his work but it's fantastic, funny, inventive and more!

Garou  (Fig-Garou-Magazine)  a french  blog about a very interesting game (and the figures which go with!) called "Drachenland"

Mickael Awdry (28mm Victorian Warfare) indescribable  but always surprising!

THE Captain!  (Captain Richard's Miniature Civil War) if you want to see the better world of ACW, it's here! 

Pryzmek (histofigsy)  a great painter!

J'ai toujours pensé que ça pourrait être sympa et intéressant de donner ici un peu de lumière sur quelques-uns des blogs des fidèles "adeptes" de Sam's Minis World ...
Il est difficile de choisir parce que vous êtes beaucoup, et chacun d'eux est intéressant!
Je vais commencer la revue avec les membres fidèles (mieux de dire:? "Amis") qui, postent des commentaires:
Mentions spéciales pour
Paul (Paul's Bods) et Peter (Peter's Cave) qui sont les amis les plus importants qui m'ont poussés vers l'avant dans le Hobby! Leurs blogs sont très intéressants et différents: je ne peux pas imaginer que certains d'entre vous les ignorent encore!
Ensuite: les "Blog-Busters"
:Fran ( The Angry Lurker)  and Ray ( Don't throw a 1): nul besoin de les présenter!
Merci à tous les autres cités ci-dessus!

  1. Now that is my sort of garden, what a delight. I can imagine many happy hours sat out in the privacy afforded by the trees enjoying a nice, long, cool drink. The roses are amazing too and what a delightful pond. A big thank you for the mention on the blog list, I'm glad you enjoy the ramblings sufficiently to be included amongst such esteemed company.

      I mention all the blogs I like, because my blog is for talking about the things I like!

  3. Merci pour
    - Ces photos, je suis aussi un grand amateur de roses, mais mon jardin semble bin plus petit que le tien...ou alors c'est parce que les photos sont prises d'un appareil spécial "hobbit"?
    - M'avoir cité, j'espère qu'on échangera encore longtemps, même si mon blog est réservé "jeux d'histoire" et que je ne peux pas mettre des photos de roses...quoique...
    - Ce blog qui est le tien, personnel et plein de bonnes idées...
    - Rappeler que Tolkien était...Tolkien...
    A très bientôt,

    1. je ne vais pas répondre à tout ce que tu écris...
      (ya rien à répondre en fait!)
      l'appareil? ben non, normal, mais le jardin est plutôt grand!

      Sinon: merci!
      (pour les raisons de mes "citations", voir plus haut!)

  4. Beautiful garden, Phil. I can almost smell the sweet aroma of the flowers from here!. It is evident that many loving hours of labor and care have gone into the garden. I will show my wife (a wonderful gardener herself) these will put a very big smile on her beautiful face. Also, thank you for the kindness of mentioning my blog.

    1. Thanks Jay!
      I hope that your wife was happy to see the pictures: I've 3000 photos or more, mostly roses !
      (I didn't mentioned their names but it's always possible!
      and some Ancient Roses have very amazing names!...
      another idea for a new post... later!)
      Your blog? ... only because I'm polite!!

  5. Hello Pascal. You have a wonderful garden and beautiful roses. The garden remebers me a little bit on a film. The story goes around a secret garden, but I can not remember the title. And thank you very much for having a place in your bloglist in this post.

    1. Merci Bruno!
      the film?? it could be an english one but which one?
      your place is here!

  6. Thanks pascal for the kind words! I'm honoured!
