A rose by any other name…

It would seem grossly unfair that I should spend a few days up with Ma and Pa and not come back with feverish pictures from the extravaganza that is their garden at the moment.

I should have gotten closer to these hollyhocks and delphiniums

Looking up through the rose aisle to the ‘bandstand’

The ‘bandstand’ with just a hint of the roses surrounding

The vibrant pink on the left is a Rosamundi, the oldest known rose and brought over by the Romans

Roses from the ‘bandstand’ with the moat in the background

The rosamundi looking wistfully romantic

Looking down the garden towards the house

And you can’t have shots of the garden without the devil-may-care  handsomeness and obliging nature of Sam

The rockery and waterfall outside the conservatory

More roses because who can get enough of them…
