Many of you may remember the huge blooms we had on our rose bushes last year.
I’m using some of the pictures I took of them for my 3TC challenge logo this year.
All 6 rose bushes are in bud, and are going to be fabulous.
I took these pictures about ten minutes ago.
This is our Peace rose. The first one is always a little straggly and it is usually the last to bloom, so it’s nice to see it this early.
This is the white Iceberg rose we bought in memory of Maggie. We were so pleased it flowered last year but this year it is covered in buds and will be really showy.
This is just one cluster on our Ancient Mariner. The bush stands about four feet high now and each stem is covered in clusters such as this. Last year I counted over 75 buds, but this year there are far more and it will be glorious.
Our red In Loving Memory is a slow starter this year, but the yellow Golden Showers climbers we bought to go with our clematis have suddenly shot up and both have numerous buds on them.
Looks like the garden is going to be a mass of colour!
