Here at the HenHouse, we're starting to have our own modest little flower show! I always try to pick some flowers to put in the guest room when we have friends staying so off I ventured into our jungle of a garden yesterday. Of course, I thought I'd have a few roses in my den too, I do enjoy the fragrance whilst I'm beavering away.
Some for the guest room...
Some "virtual roses" for bedtime reading!
There were enough for a vase for the sitting room, too.
This one is my absolute fave, growing (wildly) over the arbour in the back garden and just coming into boom now. It has a lovely fruity fragrance and the classic cup-shaped many-petalled flower form which I just love. I have no idea what variety it is.
This red one is growing (rampantly!) in the front garden and also has a beautiful, rich and heady perfume. Its petals are perfect to scent strawberry jam.
Here's a piccy of our back garden. Pretty wild! Then again, I must dig out the photos of how it looked when we moved in and you would see a big improvement (honestly!)
Finally, sending you all lots of...
