"David, should I remove the water damaged roses? Sorry - stupid question number 1.."

Doh!  I said yes to this on the tuther thread.  It will encourage your bushes to produce more flowers.

Just remembered......tea at David Austin's restaurant is served it stylish china cups decorated with (guess what) beautiful roses.

Hi, Bev....glad you found your new rose thread.

Some experts here to help and don't feel there is any questions too simple or stupid to ask.

Eating is a subjective thing and of course what suits one will not suit another. Having said that, I flatter myself that I can recognise quality nosh when I see & eat it and feel sure it will please......that's unless you're a pie 'n chips person.

I visited the David Austin nursery late last year (it's close to where  live) and would heartily recommend the restaurant......not cheap, but of a standard far higher than any restaurant I've ever experienced at a garden centre in the UK.

Thanks David - am feeling a warm glow 

I mean it.  Technical point: a good picture should be divided into thirds = 1) the foreground/footprints 2) meandering water 3) horizon/sky.

PS. I think I clicked four times to get the image I was looking for.

Chicky....from a technical point of view, that's actually a very good picture. To appreciate it properly you need to click on the picture twice.

Why was I expecting three toe footprints?

Think I agree with you, Lesley......they were far enough offshore not to be obtrusive, but I was rather surprised how many there were.

If you mean the tops are lying flat on the ground......no don't need to do anything and it's nothing to be concerned about.
