The Last of the Roses
The oldest of the rose gardens, these are mostly two and three years old.
Here you can see the three rose gardens, the Joey's in the foreground (this is the garden we planted for Jemima when she was born last year. like her they are one year old), to the left the pink and yellow roses and to the right the white garden
Some Joey's, they have grown quite well despite a pretty tough start with a cold dry spring followed by a hot dry summer
Like the Joeys these had quite a tough start, they are coming on quite well now. We lost about half a dozen roses in this bed that we will replant this winter. They are a mixture of icebergs and another larger rose that has a good perfume. One of the joys of growing the roses has been the perfume that comes right into the house on a warm day.
A pretty spot in the pink and yellow garden
Another nice view
