Left home at 8am for the Rose Garden, arrived to a beautiful display of blooms under a lovely blue sky and warm breeze.
As volunteers, we are surprised at the late mass blooming of the roses.
We start pruning them the first week in July.
A selection from Petal C and D.
"Joy of Life"
"Oranges and Lemons"
I work on the Weepers with Geoff, Bev and Ann.
We are also surprised that our weepers are still flowering.
Many of them are covered in hips, but also covered in buds.
My "volunteer adopted" rose.
