We spent last week working hard in the garden trying to get rid of as many weeds as possible. On Saturday the Warwick Plant Heritage group visited our garden, the bindweed still managed to come up overnight!
It is rewarding to show other people what we have achieved in the garden over the past 10 years and hear their comments. They seemed to have an enjoyable time and with tea and cake available the many seating areas were used, until it rained. Fortunately this was nearing the end of the afternoon, so some people could stay sitting under the sun shade while others opened umbrellas and continued walking round the garden.
The roses were still going strong, the Alfred Carrier gave a wonderful scent on the arch as you walk up the garden.
The Joanne Elise is still producing loads of blooms
Penny Lane is doing great this year, this has wonderful hips in the autumn
Not only roses in the garden but more about that on a later blog.
