Six on Saturday 25 May 2019

Lots of roses this morning, they’ve all bloomed this week. First up is the first rose I planted in June 2016, the ‘Golden Wedding’. It’s now taller than me, although I prune if quite short every winter. Next up, my beautiful Jacqueline du Pre rose. It’s second year of flowering after being planted as a bare root in Nov 2017. The scent is beautiful but you’ll have to take my word for that! Here’s the ‘Princess of Phoenicia’. I planted this last June, after my cat Jemima died aged 18; her ashes were planted with it. This is an amazing rose….last year it flowered peach and then faded to pale pink. This year the initial flowers are a darker pink. My climbing rose, Sweet Syrie, has also bloomed this week. Planted in 2017, now in its third year: A new arrival now. I planted these Delphiniums in March in a spot that I thought would get lots of sun. However since then one of my roses has shot up and is shading the plant somewhat so I’m not sure how well it will do. However it’s colour is lovely and if it survives I may move it to a less shaded area next year: And finally another new arrival. An impulse buy at the garden centre last week, a dark stemmed lace cap Hydrangea. Can’t remember it’s exact name but I’m hoping it will enjoy its new home! That’s it for this week. Head over to The Propogator for more sixes and see you soon!

    The roses are stunning, of course. Amazing how quickly they produce. Sweet Syrie is really lovely. That hydrangea was well worth the impulse!

  3. Stunning roses. Lovely lacecap. I got round to putting two hydrangea limelights in the ground. Were looking a bit dehydrated after a week ill so now trying to keep them soaked.
