A Poor Year For The Roses
Rain, followed by rain and then more rain has resulted in a poor year for our roses in the rose garden. The roses are of the old fashioned variety and do not repeat flower, flowering just once so today Ali, Callum and Ady started to dead head all the faded, wet, rotten and mouldy flowers, many were buds that failed to open after getting wet. Due to the many hundreds of failed flowers they will be back in the garden to finish the job, in between the scattered showers due over the next few days.
