Lovely one barbara, its so nice to see their late displays isnt it;0)

25 Sep, 2010

 

Yes - I have several roses in flower. :-))

25 Sep, 2010

 

Me too Barbara, Rhapsody is flowering her head off, and Graham Thomas, Lady Hillingdon, and two unknown pink ones, not sure for how long, very cold here tonight.

25 Sep, 2010

 

Handel has more buds, too, and Prima Ballerina! I haven't checked out Lady Hillingdon....now you've mentioned her, I might.

Sayonara! (lol)

I've got a little bud coming on my new Rhapsody in Blue which I had to cut right back cos of the black spot, so hopefully I will see another flower before winter sets in. Some little blighter has started taking litle holes out of he leaves now, better watch out if I catch him!

Ha ha Spritz........just to tell you have organized 3 open days for next year, and open for private parties no more than 15, wont get any cake though!!

26 Sep, 2010

 

Oooh! I muast check my Rhapsody! Is it leaf-cutter bees, Bell?

Dd - we thought about 'by appointments', but parking is our issue - we borrow a field, and the poor farmer can't be expected to keep removing the sheep up and down the lane, can he? Mind you, it's a real treat watching his collies in action. I might get groups of college students, though - their tutor asked me if I'd allow them to use the garden as a 'model'...hmmm...shall I give them all a shoehorn? LOL

27 Sep, 2010

 

Don't really know Spritz as I never can catch anything on them when I check out the leaves, they leave very small, neat holes though.

27 Sep, 2010

 

i don't think leaf cutter bees do that - so I can't think what else it could be. :-((

27 Sep, 2010

 

I'll try and get a phot to show you Spritz.

27 Sep, 2010

 

Put it on as a question - someone will know!

27 Sep, 2010

 

Do you mean the garden or you as a model? as our garden is so small I am hoping for a modest amount of people, if we had as many as Louis not sure what I would do, and our eldest daughter is making the cakes, how on earth does one work that one out?

27 Sep, 2010

 

The garden, Dd. He wants to bring students to take a look, as an alternative to the garden at the College....a domestic garden, as I think they're on a design course.

As a new garden in the NGS, you'll have to be prepared for an influx. That's what we were told, and I'm sure it's true. Make more cakes than you think you'll need - plus scones which can be whipped out of the freezer if you're running low.

27 Sep, 2010

 

Good idea, scones it is.

28 Sep, 2010

 

Glad to be of assistance, Dd. <:-)))))) (hat on - it's raining here)

29 Sep, 2010

 

I have this rose too but it hasn't done as well this year as it usually does. :o((

1 Oct, 2010

 

That's a shame - is it an older one?

1 Oct, 2010

 

Got a bud on the Rhapsody in Blue rose this week, hope we don't have too much more rain or they flowers will just bloom and go soggy.

1 Oct, 2010

 

I'll look at mine if and when I can - it's getting even wetter out there since I walked Henry!

1 Oct, 2010

 

It is here too and my car just failed its test so it looks like a few days of cadging lifts for me, or failing that the good old buses...lol

1 Oct, 2010

 

Oh no - that really is a nuisance for you. We couldn't manage without a car here... we're so rural, there isn't a bus at all. We had 10 mm of rain today. I hope it's better tomorrow, as I still have a lot more bulbs to plant.

1 Oct, 2010

 

Forecast is good for us tomorrow Spritz, so I hope you get the same. We deserve it after a day like today lol.

1 Oct, 2010

 

We do. I shall get busy - I've got about 300 bulbs to plant!!!

1 Oct, 2010

 

Good luck with that one then!!

1 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks. I shall need it - I have to clear out the tired summer bedding, first! I can't see me getting them all in.

1 Oct, 2010

 

Not now the nights are drawing in anyway....

1 Oct, 2010

 

Noooo...it's dark at 7!

2 Oct, 2010

 

Great colour :o)

2 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks, Pip - I planted a white one, an apricot and a yellow several years ago now, in a group.
