    Although I love all Roses I have got a 'thing' for pink ones and the four I've chosen are also for their scent.They're all strongly scented with that lovely familiar old Rose scent:wub2:I can't wait for them to bloom:hapfeet: there'll be no containing me when they do:rolleyespink::thumbsup:

        A little update...

        The Buxus have settled in well and putting on new growth ,the Roses are looking good,I can't wait for them to bloom.I planted 100 Tulips 'Spring green' ,they don't go far do they:rolleyespink: they were actually an experiment to see if my chooks would trample them to death but they've been very good:pathd: also put baracades up to stop them pushing there way through while the hedges thicken up:dbgrtmb:

              Wow, great new area. The parterre is a wonderful idea and you've done it so well!
              So pleased you've chosen for scent as well, that will be totally delicious :)

                              May I just ask ... how deep was the layer of sand you put onto the lawn before laying the paving?
