We have some lovely roses climbing over our orchard fence and also the chook yard. They are looking rather spectacular this year, so must thrive on neglect.
Note the lovely mauve contrast of the Patterson’s Curse:>)
The first rose is “Wedding Day” with its lovely single petals, complete with little beetle.
Next is “Zepherine Drouhin”. This thornless rose would have to be about my favourite. Unfortunately, her spring flush is past its prime, but she will continue to bloom right through to autumn.
And lastly, “New Dawn”. This beautiful soft pink climber has completely covered the chook yard, so it is quite dark in there.
I just love the way the flowers unfurl.
Imagine how good these would look if I actually took care of them.
PS. Mick just finished the mowing and presented me with these. Isn’t he sweet.
