Aren't the roses good this year :-)

Beautiful. I wish mine would hurry up and come out. I think all the plants are better than ever this year, guess the mild winter helped. You have so many blooms!

Gorgeous bit of planting, I really like the rose/geranium combination.
Which roses have you got in there simbad?

I think your right Dawn everything is flowering great here too :-), look forward to seeing your roses in bloom, how's 'Rosy Cushion doing?
I'm liking that too Resi :-) I sliced bits off a geranium that's growing in a border as Rob(OH) was moaning about it hanging over the edge of the grass only small pieces a couple of years ago they've gone mad!!
The first pink rose at the front( there are 4 of each) is 'Louise Odier', lovely rose but it does flop a bit with the weight of the flowers must support it next year the red is' William Shakespeare 2000', white 'Winchester Cathedral', peachy white 'Perdita', yellow' Golden Celebration', orange 'Pat Austin', 'Golden Showers'on the wall at the end and' Handel' near other window, which needs a bit of attention ,there's a clematis growing through it so need to detach a few stems to get a bit of dead wood out when the clematis finishes flowering :-), there's also a hydrangea petiolaris growing up the wall right hand side of far window you can only just see it from this angle.
The even better thing is all the roses are scented :-)

Thanks for that extensive description simbad, it's gone into my favourites for inspiration when I start on my rose planting.
I have never owned a non scented rose, mine have all been the old fench roses as they did so well in my previous hot garden, but here I feel I am starting from scratch again. Lots of research and smelling being done in the process!!

Rosy Cushion is fine Kathy, but still in bud, hurry up!!!

I've created a small hedge of roses but the blooms are so heavy they are weighing it down, not quite sure how to support it. I must look into it.

Thankyou Wildrose:-)
The pink one in this pictures a bit like that Dawn, I bought some spiral plant supports last year which are doing a great job supporting my peony,thought I might try some of them next year :-)
Bet you hedge looks lovely, picture? :-),its funny you should mention a hedge we're just deciding what to plant as a small hedge behind the pond and I fancy roses,rosa Mundii is one I'd love to grow and read it'll take a bit of shade so it'd be perfect :-)
