Roses In July
The other two Roses still growing that have not flowered yet are the Hybrid Tea Queen Elizabeth (from Wilkos), and the Fryers Rose Scent Sation which has a new Rose bud just opening and the hint of Turkish Delight smell. I will photograph it when it opens tomorrow or Wednesday?
The Dog Roses have grown leaves from the bare stems, but no flowers. Maybe next year?
I love Roses. The gardens Lily's will be composted and new plants used to fill the Barrel and green planters.The Lily Beetles can find other gardens to breed in and other Lilys to destroy.
I want to buy a new Rose or two. A David Austin one called Jude The Obscure, a Rose called Sunrise, and maybe the original Peace Rose (named after the end of the second world war). Roses fill the garden with form, shapes, scent, and colour. I cannot imagine a garden without Roses in it.
