Anyone knows this type of rose?

Posted: 25/09/2016 at 07:49

I think Marlorena is right - it's David Austin's rose Jude the Obscure - on the DA website it looks very apricot, but when I've seen it in 'real life' it's much paler , more like the photo here 

You could send your photo to the David Austin email address here and see what they say

If you want something else with an upright habit Taxus baccata standishii is a much better plant

Good morning all   

Im sitting in bed watching a herring gull and a crow arguing about who has the rights to the roof across the way. Very entertaining

That looks great -  the room looks so well proportioned - and I do like that beautiful china dog - it's amazing how lifelike they are isn't it?

Wonky used to be really feeble about spiders - even Bertie who lived on the landing windowsill when we lived at The Mill - I ignored such feebleness - she grew out of it eventually when she got a garden and a garden shed of her own

Sensible advise as ever Dove!  Hubby won't let me strain myself anyway, he can be quite bossy and stern sometimes!  .... 

 Mine can be like that too Wonky - I've been forbidden to try turning the compost, so I can't pull up my cosmos today 'cos there's nowhere to put it.

I've reboiled my jelly and hope that it sets now   There's another batch to do tomorrow.  

Think I'd better sit on the sofa now and sew your new jumper up ... shouldn't sprain anything doing that, should I?

They took quite a while to appear on my laptop Bob  - it's one of those days, nothing's happening as it should - I'm having to reboil my grape and rosemary jelly

They look like slug eggs to me. I'd feed them to some fish, or sprinkle some salt on them.
