I never really write a post on a Sunday, but today is the exception. I really love my garden so whenever I've been asked what I would like for my birthday or as a house warming I've been asking for roses. Aunty Inga, my friend Cathinka and my husband all bought be roses yet I know when it is winter the last thing you think about is getting the garden ready for summer, but I’ve just spent most of the day getting in David Austin bare root roses in the ground with my husband doing all the hard work. My job is to point, smile, praise and make tea for him. .. and yes I do sprinkle the root powder on too.
Now it’s dark and I’m just getting warm with a cup of tea. I am back at my computer, my damp hair is all curled into ringlets, the fire is lit and there is a lemon chicken roasting in the oven. The children are watching Monsters inc and I can hear them giggling. I have a few minutes to pop up a post about these beautiful flowers and share my vision for summer. I would say that for any garden lover now is the time to get your roses in .. right up until March, and they make superb Christmas gifts.
I have also ordered my flowers for Christmas .. they are fabulous.
