"June is bustin' out all over" from the show Carousel by Rodgers and Hammerstein

there are roses everywhere xx

This week it is all about Roses, the garden is full of them and they are such great reminders of family and friends, my dear old Dad loved to grow them from cuttings and some have been here since I first moved in. The first one to flower every year is a gorgeous Yellow, Arthur Bell, and after that as June arrives so do the others in abundance. There is a film called
A Little Chaos  with Kate Winslett, King Louis XIV of France assigns the design and construction of the Gardens of Versailles to a landscape architect .... such a lovely film, she describes her own garden as an 'abundance of chaos', this is my garden to a T.

This rose is called Barbara and was planted for my Mum xx          ..... Dorothy has her arms full xx

Such a beautiful fragrance xx                                                                           Mrs Haughty with a special skirt xx

Roses heading for the sky xx                                                                              Ruth a little heirloom fairy xxx
                                                                                                               lots of love and keep safe

Roses are flourishing in Somerset too. I do enjoy reading your blog every Friday! It is such a treat and a lovely start to the weekend. Your blogs (and watching Gardners World) make Fridays special, especially in this lockdown life. x
