PLANTING BULBS, AND ANOTHER GREAT ROSE
I understand that some people really like Autumn and refer to it as their 'favourite season'. I am not one of them. I like Summer, so Autumn is a reminder that it is over for another year. We have had a lovely sunny and almost warm week so I am continuing to pretend that Autumn is not here yet. I have seen some leaves start to change colour and deliberately pointed my camera the other way.
The Rose Garden is looking pretty in pink (and purple). The asters are still looking good, particularly the tall 'Dark Desire' on the right.
The pink is provided by Rosa 'Bonica', which deserved to be in my post on unsung heroes of the rose garden two weeks ago, but it wasn't. Which is ironic really. It flowers reliably with clusters of small flowers. It's reasonably healthy, but unscented. The two do seem to go together unfortunately.
There are a couple of plants I wanted to feature this week that are growing in the Long Border.
