The Rose Garden
Roses… wonderful, wonderful Roses. My favourite flower(probably). The scent is just intoxicating, the colours and variants in tones and textures are beautiful. The luxury they add to arrangements is second to none, and have I mentioned the scent already?!
This year, in a very soggy February, we moved and planted lots of bare- root roses in our flower garden at Holly-Bee. I think we can now say we have a Rose ‘area’, with over 120 bushes, and after that initial hard work of planting and pruning, the payoff is here. It’s my ‘happy place’ to go to, with the roses all flowering away, and the scent heady in the air.
In a moment of deadheading I made up a bouquet and tried to capture the beauty of these blooms, with a little help from Buzz (our lovely spaniel puppy/dog).
