I bought this plant in homebase about 2 years ago ..it was just finished flowering and I only paid €2 for it at the time..It was an challenge to see could I get it to flower again ..I had it in the front porch and just ignored it apart from watering it now and again..it stayed green all the time and a few weeks ago I noticed a growth coming out the side of it and today it produced this flower ...I am so pleased with it ....can anybody here tell me what it is called

New rose garden

We finally completed our new rose garden and I have to say we are really pleased with it ....The area next to it is a Herb Parterre ..at the moment it is difficult to see it clearly but when the hedge grows and joins up it will all become clear ..I used Lonicera to create the hedge.......just the woodland garden left to do now "Phew

Sorry photo is taken from upstairs  so funny angle

I can't believe it has been so long since I put up a journal or photos...Life seems to be so busy..and I suppose there was not much to take photos of till now again.... We have started a few new projects in the garden ...a new circular rose bed which we hope to have planted up with 24 Florabunda roses and 1 white standard ..we will have 4 differant colours red,(Trumpeter)...   pink ( Your beautiful) ... peach (Sheila's perfume) and yellow ( Arthur bell) (6 of each)and the standrard will be white..we hope to have planting completed by this weekend so I will put up some photos ..We have put some decking at the back of the greenhouse,it is a sun trap so when we are finished all the projects it will be a nice place to sit ......I am trying to create a willow arbour,it is still in the early stages... Lots of seeds have been sown and are ready for picking out ...hopefully will get lots done this weekend weather permitting.....Happy Gardening  everyone

Frosty in Roscommon

Frosty in Roscommon

It was very frosty in Roscommon yesterday morning...only thing I like about the frost is that it makes everywhere look beautiful and gives great opportunities for a few nice photos... Our Christmas Cactus is looking really nice right now ...

Lovely few days

We had 5 full days in the garden over the long weekend and we whipped a few things into shape :) Hopefully the good weather will continue this weekend and we may even get it finished ..I have put up an album if anyone wants to view our efforts, sorry there are so many photos did not know what to leave out....

Lovely weekend

Lovely weekend

What lovely weather we had this weekend...it was just perfect for gardening ..nice warm sunshine and a slight breeze.....and we took full advantage of it....I think I have finally  got the upper hand on the weeds,with so many beds and only weekends to work on them the weeds take hold very fast....Graham was busy putting mulch (garden compost ) on all the areas as I wed them so hopefully it will keep them down for a while...I will put up some pics I took before we set off for Dublin yesterday evening ....
