THE START OF THE ROSE FLOWERING SEASON


Crocus Rose
The start of the rose flowering period in my garden even today loading these photos the garden has changed since I took the photos two days ago.


Crocus Rose a delightful rose with soft apricot buds opening and bleaching to mainly white flowers. with  a delicious fragrance.


Falstaff strong bold flowers and deep rose perfume but after rain a tendency for the heavy flowers to droop.


Sweet Juliet a beautiful flower strong plant and abundance of flowers although the flowers are looking smaller this year than I remember.


Sweet Juliet


Mayor of Casterbridge another vigorous shrub rose hence the supporting hazel poles. A strong fragrance.


Mayor of Casterbridge again the flowers seem much smaller must remember to feed with compost this year.


Noble Anthony

Francis E Lester difficult to photograph as most of the flowers seem to be in next doors tree.


Rambling Rector always an early flower and very rampant it really deserves a much larger area to climb.


Cottage Rose one of my favourites and one I have taken cuttings from. Cottage Rose was moved three times before liking it's current situation and thriving.


 Cornelia grown from a cutting

Cecile Brunner grown from a cutting given to me by a dear neighbour who is no longer with us.
