It has been a wet few days.I was out in the garden early photographing the flowers.My Florida Dream pink Rose is flowering beautifully, and the scent is of sweet oranges.I love their shape and how they get bigger but still hold the petals.The rain had washed them downwards.
The climbing Rose Zephrine Drouhain has three flower buds on one climbing stem.I missed the first Rose opening when I was at Tatton Park.Its a wander of nature when a flower opens on a plant you have been tending, and nurturing.The wow factor never goes down for me.Every new Rose is photograph worthy!
The Lady Emma Hamilton has flowered eleven times, and this will be the twelth Rose.They are delicate though and the rain breaks the petals up too easily.Maybe next years flowers will be sturdier.
The suprise return of the Margaret Merrill Rose.The most strongly fragranced after the Lady Emma Hamilton.I cut off all the black spot diseased leaves and this new growth duly sprung up and has formed flower buds. One Rose still in flower, with three other Roses returning for an encore, like operatic divas of the garden. The rain cannot dampen the Roses spirits.
