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…
- Mr Lincon
- Big Purple
- Winter Sun
- Ice Girl
- Barbara Streisand
