Everything’s rosy in the garden

July, the month when roses bloom.

I have 2 of these ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ roses, and they flower all through June, July and even August, if I’m really lucky.

This rose is called ‘Peace’, the plant was a bargain buy from a well-known UK discount shop, and it is one of the healthiest and most productive roses I’ve grown. Beautiful.

The rose I bought for my darling cat Oliver is covered with flowers, stunning orange with delicate perfume. ‘Orange Abundance’ is its name-how apt!

‘Nostalgia’, lovely cream and pink petals.

These last 2 roses flower on and on for weeks….but I don’t know their names. Pretty and pink, anyway.image

I found this rose hiding away in the front garden, behind lacy fennel fronds.

It’s called ‘Ferdinand Pichard’. Last year it didn’t flower at all, I think it was having a rest, so I’m delighted to see this rose make a comeback.

All looking lovely and rosy in the garden, right now.
