Flowers at Ropes Mansion Gardens

It seems appropriate to post these photos of the Ropes Mansion Garden today, as Hurricane Irene is barreling up the coast, perhaps through Salem.

The flowers in the Ropes Garden are at their peak right now, and I am sure that they will not look so good after the wind and rain that we expect tonight and tomorrow.

I love the dew on these climbing roses.
Water lilies in the pond.

I wish I knew the name of these unusual flowers.  Unfortunately all of the tags for the garden are sitting all together in a few flower pots on the grounds.  Wish they would put them in with the actual flowers.

Anyone know what these might be?

I pray the garden is spared too much destruction today, but hope you enjoy seeing it as I did yesterday.
