Kirsty’s birthday roses

Recently I was rather spoiled and was given a heap of bare root roses for my birthday by sister Kirsty. Today I was admonished for not having posted any pictures of them in the ground. Well the reason for this was that I actually hadn’t planted them yet. Oops.

So today in the wind and rain…

 Now I know they are not much to look at at the moment, roses never are in winter.

But when

  • Zaide
