AUGUST IN THE ROSE GARDEN
It's been a mixed bag this week regarding the garden. A few days of rain have been most welcome, but have kept me indoors. Today it was strong winds that kept me inside, but in between there has been time for some weeding, trimming and dead heading. I've also been bitten to bits - red ants, horse flies, mossies - they've all had a nibble. But you don't want to read about that, lets get on to the plants.
1. The Scent of Phlox
2. White Roses
The second flush of roses have started, with Margaret Merril making even more of a display than the first time round. I'm thankful that I took these photos before the wind and rain of the last couple of days.
