It doesn’t have to produce many flowers to redeem itself does it. It’s such a gorgeous rose. I adore the scent 😍

To be honest girls I could cry...the rain has stopped for the moment, but the wind is horrendous and the garden is a mess, another of my old roses has snapped away from the fence, my big Geranium has collapsed and quite a few other things aren't looking too good either. As my boys would say...this wind can do one! 😠😥@nessas @keely @lexijane @juliesgarden @icedance @jaynehynesburton
