Compassion Rose


A very dear friend of 25 years sadly passed away yesterday
So I have decided to plant a climbing rose with the name Compassion as a little memory….On a lighter note decided to spend some time clearing out my lilly pot as they have started to emerge…..

Also going to add some Black-Eyed Susan to the front and have place these close to the back door.

Hope my new addition likes it’s little spot. Might also have to think about dividing my bleeding heart. x

That's a lovely idea to plant the Compassion rose.
I'm sure it will bloom well each year to bring back happy memories of your friend.

Your blue pots look good :o)
Nice tidy area there !

Thanks so much for all your kind words....x Do you have a picture of your Compassion Rose Cindrella? Just now waiting for Andy to help me out with his spade. The Dicentra has gone mad this year.
