Something lovely arrived ....
I was terribly organised and way back in March I ordered 4 roses for planting this winter.
This is the photo that made me want to get some roses for the garden. I took it in summer on Christmas Day. I just thought how lovely it would be to have roses on our own table from our own garden.
Aren't they pretty. All hybrid teas with a strong fragrance. ( all in shades of pink with one cream, not sure why the photos have come out making them look salmon - salmon they are not!)
Pretty much the second they were unpacked I panted them in the spot I'd chosen. Of course it started raining ( now that I've done it the sun is shining again!) I think they should do well as it's a sunny well drained part of the garden, just as you come up the path to the house, so I'm hoping the smell will be gorgeous.
Now one thing I am not quite so happy about...
how on earth do you get mud out of nails. Never a problem I've really had before!
