I’m sorry to hear that, I know what you mean by aching bones.

I’m not a natural gardener, it’s all trial and error with me, its taken me three years to realise that a Fatsia Japonica wasn’t happy where it was, so I moved it and within two days, its ears had pricked up and it was wagging its tail.
The plants this year appear to be doing exceptionally well, oh include the weeds as well.
Lupins doing well.

Lady of Shallot standard rose looks and smells gorgeous.

I think this is Cow Parsley which I always used to treat as weed but last year, after seeing members photographs of their Cow Parsley, I’ve it let it flourish. Must keep control though.

We have a small garden and have limited the varieties of plants to those that we know do well on clay soil, which is wet in winter and bakes hard in summer. We are at peak geranium, with the peonies now coming out, and the roses too. The verbenas will be flowering soon; they are one of my favourite plants, but as they are so happy they self seed and we pull them out in their hundreds.

More photos from Rock & Roll rose. The flowers change colour over the days and they last ages. Some of my other roses flower, then drop within a day or two. In this photo, the bottom right flower is the original one I posted. 5 days and counting.

And they smell great.

Seems like gaudy, stripy roses are the things to get into. Come on, let your real self out.
