SMELLING OF ROSES

Roses, who doesn’t like roses. They are all beautiful but I prefer the ones with a lovely smell. I have several of them in my garden so at the moment my garden smell’s of roses and it is so nice to sit outside in the garden and smell their perfume.

A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

When I was looking at the back wall of my house I saw my Passiflora Caruleum and one of my clematis Etoile Violette holding each other and I thought ; well this looks like a match made in heaven. They are clinging on to each other nicely. Although the passion flower is a vigorous grower it does not suffocate the clematis.

And now the passion flower is getting fruits, when ripe they’ll get a bright orange colour.

The rose you can see here is a rambler called Francis E. Lester and it has selfseeded in my skimmia White Kew bush , I don’t have the heart to remove it so I keep it small. Don’t they look good together !!!!! Also a match made in heaven if you ask me. Plants are soooooo clever !

Have a great weekend all ! And thanks for stopping by !
