Rock Rose

Rock Rose

Nothing done in the garden today as we have a guest. Just had a little wander around and took some photos of whatever caught my eye.

This is my rock rose which has just started to bloom. Half of it was killed in the cold weather. So I am very pleased to see it bloom with so many buds to come yet!

Will put up a few photos!!

Lovely to see everything in bud and even the apples forming. You have a lovely selection of clematis.
