In the next day or two

I am convinced the Ancient mariner will be flourishing.
I’ve counted 11 buds on it, and took this picture with my phone today:
This is a cluster of four buds, one is well on its way and a second not far behind.
The experts description says it has large showy pink blooms, and they’re not wrong!

All the above from June 2018.
This one from June 2019, which was a disastrous year for all of our roses and home produce as we’d tried to grow everything in pots, and the weather was either scorching hot or pouring with rain!

I’ve also counted 3 buds on our red In Loving Memory. Nothing to photo there yet, so this is last year

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I hope you get some delightful flowers on your rose bushes. Maybe this will be a year to make up for last year! (there has to be a silver lining – somewhere!)

    Nice flowers and I am sure the bees love them! Get lots of honey from those big blooms!
