Rambling Rosie


The climbing roses that cloak the pergola are now in their seventh year. I cant believe it was that long ago when I constructed the arbour, ordered the bare root plants and started this blog.

There are some who question the wisdom of putting red and pink together, but I think they work just fine and for around four or five weeks in early summer, the pathway which leads to La Forge is flanked by the flowering magnificence of 'Rambling Rosie' and 'American Pillar' (rosie is red, pillar pink) both ofwhich I bought from Peter Beales roses in the UK.

    1. Particularly the red Rambling Rosie who doesn't washout in the harsh midsummer sun.

    1. Where does the time go? There's no scent unfortunately. I think I missed a trick there.
