Have found this pic of Tuscany Suberb which is a more accurate colour, feel fairly sure that's what it is.

I'd wondered about Tuscany Superb too. It's more deep crimson than purple in real life, the photo has changed the colour.

David, what are all those little white flowers on the ground? It looks beautiful where you live.

That looks like Euphorbia Grifthii, but it's a bit pinker than usual, must be the photo. Probably "Fireglow".

Morning all.

The red shines out beautifully against the path.

My garden is now a bit battered after the huge storm on Wednesday.

Does anyone know the name of this rose? It is a shrub, about 6 feet tall, only flowers once. My garden plan I've had since 1992 has vanished and I've forgotten some of the names.

I would have thought so if you train it and tie it in and snip off the unwanted bits. Some honeysuckles would be too vigorous.

Been busy, social life and gardening until the huge storms yesterday. Garden looks somewhat battered.

I would nip them off.

Roses

If it's not a virus, then it could be as OL says, lack of regular watering. Roses in pots need an amazing amount of water. I have a lot and when underwatered the flowers are small.

It is probably "Herb Robert" a wild geranium. Has it a strong smell? It is difficult to get rid of and readily seeds itself. Fairly resistant to glyphosate, I've found. You will have to be persistent, weeding and spraying.
