Well after yesterday’s church shoot in the rain, I decided to go for some colour again today.
I spent a happy half an hour in the garden in perfect early evening sunlight. The roses are in full bloom now and the scent of the pink flowers is incredible. I hard pruned all of the roses back this spring, and I was worried that I had overdone it, but they seem to have enjoyed their haircut.
Unfortunately the greenfly seem to be enjoying the roses as much as I am, so any tried and tested aphid disincentives would be welcome.
