A Rose by any other name...




This year we made a conscious decision to leave the roses un-pruned.


Most of them have kept a reasonable shape


But not all. I don't mind this informal, floppy look.


This New Dawn for several years climbed on the house front and along the edge of the greenhouse and last year it started climbing up the greenhouse roof.


Now I am intrigued as to how far it will climb. Look how the heat from the greenhouse has promoted the flowers compared to the buds on the house front.

Preserve or not to preserve.



Yes, I know it is invasive, one sees Autumn Olive along the side of most roads. If you get a chance, stop and enjoy its fragrance at this time of year.


It is not dissimilar to Fothergilla Mt airy


In the fall it produces an abundance of fruit which the birds love.


It also makes exceedingly good jam.

Bring it on Jack


After a somewhat stressful workday, the threat of a frost tonight, a cold wet miserable evening, I donned my flat cap, waterproof coat and ventured out with camera in cold hand. Do your worst Jack Frost. Tomorrow is a better day.
