Gertrude Jekyll Rose started flowering before most of my other roses and came out a very cerise pink.
A lovely cistus which tends to be lower growing and was in the garden when we moved here 40 years ago, this is one of many cuttings.
White rose Francine Austin with Jayne Austin peach just starting to flower and bright pink cerise cystus in the foreground. The red rose is a cutting from Nanny's rose.
Francine Austin is magnificent this year.
It has been my pleasure to watch the plants in the front garden come into bloom.
I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast cancer in January followed by a mastectomy and then four rounds of Chemotherapy. The chemo has been horrendous so I have been unable to do anything in the garden and Mike is doing a wonderful job of taking care of things. My last chemo was just over a week ago so it will be at least another week before I start to improve.
