What a difference in five days … so many blooms on this white rambling Rose.

This is how it looked five days ago …

Here it is today …

I wish it was in bloom all Summer!

Shirley its a good job you have a sturdy arch to hold this wonderful display.

20 Jun, 2015

 

I wish it would stay like this for you too!
So lovely

Thanks Ladies ... Phyl, that arch is now about five years old and has supports all around it! It rocks a bit when the wind blows :o(

Looks really pretty, my Rector is just starting to flower but there are so many buds it should be amazing soon. It certainly lives up to its name. lol. Hope so will post pictures when it is!

Shirley that is gorgeous, our arch is very rickety and like Jacks House and my old shed its on a tilt, the clematis and rose are what hold it in place, hubby says it adds character each time I ask him to fix it, lol.....

I'm lost for words. I found myself saying 'wow!' like so many others here...but what else can I say?

Lovely comments on this Rose ... I've just looked back to see that it was planted in April 2011.

Lincs, that's the kind of thing my OH would say!

Aren't they beggars, mine has tidied my garden shed up a bit today but only because his posh new mower was getting in the way in his own shed and there wasn't enough room in mine at first...

21 Jun, 2015

 

WOW ! Shirley that is so beautiful ! I'm worrying about all my roses now as its raining heavy and the forecast for the week is more rain and its not even warm ! Sorry...just having a moan !

22 Jun, 2015

 

Laden with flowers ! It's beautiful Shirley :)

22 Jun, 2015

 

Lincs, I totally understand how you feel ...

Rose, I hope you didn't get any rain ...

Oh hello Hywel, "long time no speak" as the saying goes! The Rose is looking lovely still and the Bees are enjoying it too :o)

WOW! Stunning rose.

My OH is another that opts for the "character" look but this year he's been forced into re-roofing my little shed cos he left it last year & now it's in danger of collapsing & then where would keep his mower. His huge shed is too messy & full of rubbish!

I haven't had much time lately see Shirley ... I've got lots to catch up on now lol :)
I hope you are all right !

27 Jun, 2015

 

Lol Green finger!

Yes Hywel, I'm fine and more relaxed now that Mum is safe and well in her new home. I have been taking Fuchsias from her garden to mine! :o)

28 Jun, 2015

 

That's a good idea Shirley. It will be nice for you to have some plants from your mum's garden. I'm sure they'll enjoy their new home, where they'll be loved :o)

28 Jun, 2015

 

Thanks Hywel ... :o)

Thanks Dotty, some of the blooms are falling down now making the ground look as though it's been snowing!

4 Jul, 2015

 

I can well imagine....

6 Jul, 2015

 

Hopefully we will have some rain tomorrow ... the ground is just so dry.

6 Jul, 2015

 

the petals are falling here too Shirley, we had a drop of rain here.

6 Jul, 2015

 

I wish we could have a real drenching ... I have just been to Mums to dig up a few more plants for my garden ... the soil is bone dry :o(
