Roses (in the ugly stage)

From the sofa some nice roses seemed like such a good idea, so easy to order and on offer as well….

However, digging the bed was less fun. Stripped back the earth, dug through the horrid clay / old builders debris from c. 1960, waited for the frosts to end.

But in the end they are in: Gentle Hermione, Munsted Woods, Skylark, Cottage Maid and the Ingenious Mr Fairchild. I am planning to under plant with geraniums and bulbs. Hopefully prettier photos will be available in June, but for now, here are some stalks and manure. 😉
