The Teddington Gardener

Any day now, roses

A few more days of this warm sunshine and the dam will break, the floodgates will open, the genie will be out of the bottle, the cork will pop, the….. you get the idea. Roses, roses and more roses and very welcome they will be.

In flower now are Wisley 2008 (above) and The Alnwick Rose (below) both from the David Austin stable. His English roses come in pink naturally, but also rich yellows and oranges too, reds and purples, whites and creams and a whole range of forms. Many fragrances too, though neither of these varieties is especially notable.
