June glorious June


Now the garden becomes a blaze of colour in the rose-beds and along the wall. Today, I spent a happy time with camera photographing roses. What a pity I cannot share with you their wonderful fragrance...

From palest pink to



deep, velvety red



Most are F1 hybrid tea roses or climbers...

Then there are the various rich yellows, oranges, pale creams and bi-colours...

Your roses are so lovely they made me catch my breath--especially the blush pink one. I used to grow Graham Thomas roses in many colors--think they were hybrids of old English roses? Most memorable one I had was a climbing Peace--that magnificant color tumbling all over a fence. . .

Thank you! (smile) I photographed an exhibition of children's scarecrows in a Victorian walled garden in Cornwall last summer.
