There has not been a day in the past twelve months when there was not least one rose in the garden.
This year we have the best spring blooming of roses since I have been here. They are usually at their best in the autumn. but at the moment quite spectacular.
I am looking forward to the new Joey garden blooming and the first flowers on the standards. They are about a week off I think as are the bush roses which should be lovely this year.
the Just Joey's in Jemima's garden are stunning
as are the Peace roses in the pink and yellow garden. Mum had a lovely Peace rose in our garden at Premer so they always remind me of her.
The lavender is at its best at the moment as well so makes a lovely contrast to the roses. We have planted lavenders in almost all the rose beds as they go so well together.
