Boring, boring rosesN

Obelixx, do you mean the first photo I sent on page 2? I think it's Tuscany, but planted it about 23 years ago and lost the garden plan and the label. Here it grows taller than the websites say, about 5 foot. The flowers are more deep velvety crimson than in the photo and it's semi-double, perfumed. http://www.paulbardenroses.com/gallicas/tuscany.html

Not a trace of blackspot on my Shropshire Lad and hardly any thorns, about 2 per stem. It's in a pot. Not yet having another flush of flowers, but usually does in September.

I have one. Lovely delicate yellow, scented, small flowers in clusters, repeat rambler (which is rare). Not too rampant. Mine is in a pot, I posted a photo on the previous page.

Good morning Marion. That's a lovely photo.

We have had lots of rain here in SW France. Garden looks so much happier and another flush of roses is starting. Grass is green again.

Hugs for Lily P. Glad the scan was OK, hope the results are good.

Morning all. Another wet night. DD forecast is better from tomorrow where I am.

My roses are starting another flush. They must like this rain. Has anyone seen Verdun's anti rose thread? Shame on you, Verdun. Got me all worked up

I'm surprised that, living in the sticks, Topbird, you haven't had mice in the bedroom, we get bats too sometimes when the windows are open. Cute.

 Photo taken yesterday.

Hello Verdun, are you eating a donut for breakfast? I agree with Yvie - boring swathes of ornamental grasses. I once had a red pennisetum that didn't grow and I have a boring golden carex in a pot that a friend gave me. I think plants grow better when they know you like them! I have roses out from May until December, even if only a few at a time in July and August.

The Pilgrim has started again, lots of buds and some are out. Lovely delicate fragrance in the evening. Has never been ill.

 

Hiding a Tree Trunk

I'm sorry about your husband, I hope gardening helps. It's such a big subject, there's a lot to learn. I would buy some gardening books, good to read in winter and you can get them cheap from 2nd hand books stalls - often in churches!
