        Your Rosa is similar in colour to one I have in the back garden but I don't know the name waiting for it to open and Woo said he would identify it for me as he's just done my "Birthday Girl" in my front garden :)
        When we had this property there was two roses either end quite large climbers in deep red and they did look lovely but after trimming them back..they always headed towards the windows in full growth :scratch:...so in the end they was removed when we finally started getting the front garden in order :)

          Your garden and roses look stunning this year Mr Grinch! :dbgrtmb: I remember when you started laying the lawn and paths, it's come a long way since then. :)

            Thanks it’s annoying that photo bucket seems to have wiped the photos on here as I loved to look back.

              You're welcome. :) I've heard recently that Photobucket have back tracked so perhaps your photo's may be reinstated. Mine are all on my computer, I wasn't prepared to risk them elsewhere.

                    Really pleased with the wildlife this year aswell. More butterfly’s and bees than normal. Loving the nectar plants I’ve planted. The weather must also help as they hate wet summers. It’s been so dry here. No rain for at least 7 weeks now. The only down side is I have to water a lot especially the newly planted bare root roses which have suffered a wee bit.
                    Perversely the damp border where the pool is situated is dry top 1 foot then damp under that. Lots of froglets though so very pleased.

                          I love the big borders and variety of plants you have Mr Grinch.
