After yesterday's heat, this morning was damp underfoot after the rain at the Rose Garden.
Every time we deadhead a spent bud on the weepers, we were rained upon by the wet branches.

Over the weekend the Victoria State Rose Garden Show was held.
The attending crowd were asked to vote for the best smelling rose.
1st "Pope John Paul" (white rose)
2nd "Mr Lincoln" (red rose)
3rd "Papamillion" (red rose)
An interesting fact that these 3 roses did not need to be replaced in the vase over the weekend.
All the others did, only lasting one day.
The bees are enjoying "Gentiliana"
