Rosa banksiae & Wisteria

In the blog for the 24th February 'Rosa banksiae Lutea', I mentioned that unlike many other roses, this rose was pruned after flowering and that pruning with the other roses would remove all the flowers. Well, it is absolutely covered in small, double, pale yellow flowers glistening in the May sunshine.
Flowering alongside this rose and around the front quadrangle, Provost's garden and to the rear of the cottages, numerous Wisteria can be found, their blue flowers cascading like a water fall. The harsh winter has had its rewards, the floral splendour around the college is the best for many a year.
