This is called the Blue Rose for some very odd reason. I got this as a birthday present from my mother a few years ago. It was badly affected when I neglected and I was not sure if it would be able to recover. I was so glad to see these, the first blooms on it for three years
These blackberries here were the first things that we planted in the garden when we moved in and a few years ago I planted a climbing rose close by. Now they are closely intertwined and support each other well.
This year hopefully there seems to be a bumper crop of blackberries on the way for jam making season. Beautiful with apples from a neighbours orchard. Yummmmmmm
This little burst of orange gorgeousness was given to me by my sister-in-law. It will grow absolutely anywhere and the plant doubles in size in the matter of weeks. It's brilliant for corners of the garden where nothing else wants to live. I found that it thrives under trees. The flowers themselves are on long stems and last ages as cut flowers in the house.
|A beautiful visitor today which sadly has now become a rare sight.|
