Covent Garden = Perfection

Covent Garden = Perfection

This rose Convent Garden is just so perfect despite the heavy deluges of rain over the last few days. It was one of the first roses I planted here and flowers all summer long certainly earning it's place in the garden not bad for a rose bought from B&Q 3 for £10stg.

Beautiful with the raindrops!

It's a rich red just is the light and the rain drops making it look coral.

it still looks fab geraldine, when i saw it first i thought it was speckled, until i realised that it was raindrops, might need to go to specsavers

Yes, that is a beauty and proves that you dont need to spend a fortune to get a good rose! Actually I think the roses are putting on a good ' last minute' display at the moment.

Great, considering the recent rain.

Lovely rose Geraldine, Not all roses put up with the rain, and we did get rain recently.

Yes I agree with Dick some of our roses have put on fantastic growth but there flowers are very badly affected by the rain, so its a keeper Geraldine.
