Roses around my workshop window in mid-June...
I've no idea what this Rose is called but it's a welcome sight as it was planted many years ago, long before we moved here.
The base stems are thick & mossed. It didn't flower at all for many years. Each year since I've lived here, I've pruned it carefully, cut back the thuggish Tree Peonies & Climbing Hydrangea surrounding it & given it a feed.
Now it reliably flowers each June. Nothing dramatic (yet) but always welcome as one of the first Roses to flower here in Summer.
And there's no such thing as too many Roses, is there?
