Any idea of Rose Variety?

My guess would probably be 'Awakening'.

Yes, I did take a peek when you said where they were and seriously Tracy, I did think what a handsome family you were.

PS. The 'bendy' stems are caused by the tendrils gripping  them.....try to remove as many as you can that are located near the stems.

Thank you for the compliment by the way David, I have had a couple of bendy stems though 


Compliment? Now when I saw your 'wedding' photos..... phwoar - swoon - thud!

Then I could quite easily have complimented you.

OL - I see the stems are nice, long & straight......just to prepare you, as the season progresses the stems will shorten substantially, so have some egg cups standing by.

I am cutting them tomorrow David, most of them have come out yesterday/today, I cut a load on Saturday, couldn't throw them in the compost heap, I'll just fill the house with sweet peas  


 After all the hard work, we don't want them going to seed.

I took loads to an old people's home today......according to the staff, the smell brings back childhood memories.
