The new rosebed is taking shape. My lovely husband cut back the turf and put in a nicely curved edge that he can neatly mow around, and I’ve planted out a rosemary and half a dozen roses. There’s Nye Bevan, Vanessa Bell, Lark Ascending and Scarborough Fair. I’ve moved into that spot a ‘Keep smiling’, ‘Nostalgia Taneiglt’ and ‘Blyth spirit’ from other spots in the garden.
Most of the roses are yellows, with a touch of peach and deep red. I’m excited for how this will look in summer next year. I’ve wanted to plant a rose bed for a very long time, and its fantastic to finally make it happen. 🙂
Simon the amazing gardener has put a ‘stargazing window’ into the pergola, and added a step up to the deck…
I picked six teeny flowers for a teeny vase: salvia amethyst, cyclamen and nasturtium
And last week, I collected a few tree seedlings from neighbours for the Shared Earth hedgerow project. We’ve not exactly decided where these will be planted, so they’re waiting in a bed for a few weeks till we’re ready for planting. There’s a Christmas day planting session planned, it might be that we plant these then!
Hedgerows are amazing – just for @Tony Tomeo, here’s a bit of history of Britain’s hedges, some of them go back thousands of years.
Have a super week, and check out ‘Six on Saturday’ for more garden shenanagins.
