Roses are probably the world’s favourite flower, and mine too.
This hot pink rose is from the bottom of the garden, and after some more epic pruning, it is now (just about) visible from the window of my desk.
It was a pleasant surprise to find a few battered pink roses poking through the weeds a few weeks ago, and now that this rose has more support and is getting more sun, it’s really starting to bloom.
These stems, and the foliage from what I’m guessing is a copper beech tree, are now on display in a vase on Monday.
Each week, gardeners share pictures of flowers “In a Vase on Monday”.
This week my collection includes roses, snapdragons, lady’s mantle, and Himalayan honeysuckle.
The vase is recycled glass, it’s one that me and husband picked up at a Frome market for about £7.
The roses are sweetly scented, and utterly gorgeous.
Pop over to Cathy’s blog to see some delightful flowers, it’s a wonderful way to start the week.
And as always, I hope that your plans and plants are coming along very nicely.
