Probably like most people’s Roses they give us great colour and perfume across the summer months…some of the first real bright spots in the garden. Then they fall into a dry stupor as the days get hotter and drier.
Then they seem to shake off the summer blues and give us a refreshed burst of blooms…. may be not as large or as full but just as perfect to welcome the approach of autumn.
