the autumn colours of this epitomises the season. its typical of what a child might draw when doing a tree in autumn...every colour in the box is used..

 

my one regret is that i didnt take the photo 2 days ago as this is when it was at its best. loses its leaves very quickly.

monarda?

not sure if this is a monarda or not. i pulled up a few lengths of it a couple of years ago and it has spread itself...the scent is beautiful. heady.

i thought the rose i had in my garden-the one i dug up from a delapidated garden and replanted-was Fragrant Cloud but now i'm not too sure


the new rose IS fragrant cloud and looks very different to the existing one

the existing one is beautifully scented. i was under the impression that it was fragrant cloud but seeing the 2 together i'm not sure

any rose lover out there help?

weak rose branches or...?

trumpeter

anyone know why some branches on standard roses are hanging down...the rose is Trumpeter...is there anything i should be feeding it to strengthen it.

or is that normal?

 

they are planted a year!

i finished planting 45 roses yesterday.

20 fragrant cloud

20 arthur bell

1 arthur bell standard

4 iceberg

 

i spread cow manure around the when i finished-i've noticed that this becomes really nice and friable after a few months and sets off the plants lovely

it was tough work in the sun if i'm being honest especially as i am your archetypal fair skinned irishman! thank god its all done now

hopefully the roses will be happy in their new bed for many years to come
