A Good Year for Roses




















I actually wrote this post yesterday because tomorrow my daughter is taking me out for a lovely day of shopping then lunch and maybe a bit of vintage shopping so I'm keeping my fingers crossed the sun stays shining.

































But being a women and being excellent at multi-tasking I'm also going over to the lovely Jane's from SmallButCharming for her 'flowers in the house' link party, always fun so if you have a few flowers pop them in vase and join in.



























The Roses are wonderful this year, I have no idea why but this year they seem huge.




































This lovely cream Rose is a tea rose called 'Sombreuil' I'm very lucky it grows so well as it slightly sensitive to frost but it comes back every year.

  1. Well, let's hope that next year is a good one for roses as I hope to plant some near the summerhouse, in a bed edged with lavender.
    Way, way too hot for me to even contemplate going outside... already in the mid to high 20s at nine in the morning. Pretty soon it will be too warm to think, for me.
    Hope you enjoyed your shopping....

  2. Hello Deborah:
    Oh, what a fun time you will have with your daughter for sure. And, hopefully, beautiful weather to match the occasion.

    Your Roses are indeed looking wonderful. Clearly they have enjoyed the seasonal weather.

  20. Debra I'm so inspired each and every time I visit your blog. Simply stunning roses! Mine are not doing so well this Summer, the Spring was fine but the extreme heat has got to them, so it's so nice to pop over to view yours, and your hutch! Ever changing, and always so lovely!
