Spent the morning at the Rose Garden in the grounds of the Werribee Mansion.
Avenue of "Brass Band"
Our roses survived the heat and winds.
Some of our volunteers deadheading the blooms.
First deadheading is cut one leaf down the stem, as time goes on we can cut the dead blooms off a few leaves down the stalk.
I work on the weepers with Geoff, Bev and Ann.
Mats are used to gather the trimmings, 2 pieces of wood with shade cloth attached to the wood.
When finished, rolled up for easy storage.
We found this little empty birds nest in one of the weepers.
We think it may be that of the Blue Wren.
Interwoven with blue plastic string, not sure where the bird found it.
