Summer 2009/2010::Roses

I am a lover of roses.
You just can't beat them.
You just plonk a stick in the ground,
give 'em a bit of water every now and again
and out they come - in glorious technicolour.
Mine don't even really get a fertilize.
A splash of Seasol if they are lucky.

I ordered 10 new ones from Treloars in winter.
This one is a standard called Brass Band - I think it is my favourite.

And don't let anyone tell you, you can't transplant roses in the middle of summer.
This one, name unknown, an original rose at our Ararat house, I moved in January 2008.
It's coming along beautifully.
