Monday again, and time to join in with this vase of roses over at In A Vase over at Cathy's Rambling In The Garden
Suddenly the roses have all burst into bloom at the same time ... it's heavenly. A wander around the garden resulted in this bunch of mixed roses, with astrantia 'Buckland' and a very beautiful dark red unknown variety - a transplant from a friend's garden which is establishing itself very nicely. Also included is good old Lady's Mantle, alchemilla mollis, and a couple of sprays from the black elder, sambucus 'Black Beauty'.
This is my favourite white rose, 'Tranquility'.
The climber, 'Susie' - only put in last year but doing so well.
'Carefree Days' - a patio rose that has other ideas! We transferred her from a pot to the border and she is now flourishing and outgrowing all expectations!
Some of the roses have no name, for example this stunning and heavily scented deep pink climber - pictured here with white clematis grandiflora.
Other roses included are the pale pink 'Happy Retirement' and a bud from the very striking 'Hot Chocolate' - brown in bud opening to a vivid orange.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you will pop over to Cathy's blog, Rambling In The Garden, where you will find links to many more beautiful arrangements to admire.
