They Escaped The Secateurs

Jackie spent much of the day watering the garden; my major task was dead heading roses. Here is a gallery of some of those that escaped the secateurs:

Each picture is labelled in the gallery which can be accessed by clicking on any image.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s hot, spicy, pasta arrabbiata with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Cabernet Sauvignon.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

    1. It certainly is, strong scent, perfect bud shape, virtually disease resistant, great colour too, what else could you call it!

  1. Oh, wow – I can almost smell the roses! So beautiful. I DO like how I can click on a photo and then advance forward through all of them very easily. Perhaps that is the work of the new editor you are working with.

    1. It is the new editor, Jodie.If you scroll down to each gallery page you can view full size then even enlarge twice more. I think I will stay with it. Thanks very much.

  2. Thank you, Jackie and Derrick, for taking such tender loving care of the roses! They are stunning! Each colour so beautiful! If I had to pic a fav or two…I’d say Alan Titchmarsh and Absolutely Fabulous…love those 2 colours!!!! 🙂
    And I can smell them! Heavenly! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
    PS…I just had to google Mr. Titchmarsh and I found out…Rose named after the well-loved English horticulturist, Alan Titchmarsh MBE, writer and broadcaster, who has been a great inspiration to gardeners for many years. 🙂 You probably already knew this…I didn’t, so I’m learning. 🙂

  3. Here’s the proof that I’m no kind of gardener; I had to look up the word ‘secateurs.’ Now that I know, I think I could wield them, but only under close supervision.
