I am sometimes offered old rose bushes, usually from people wanting to start new gardens of the no fuss variety. I always take the bushes, and feel a sense of pride when they kick off in their new surroundings. This is a bush from a very old garden. It was destined for the tip!! If you study my header picture it is the dead looking stump in the pot!! From the same garden I have a coral colored 1950s rose flourishing against an old fence. Recycling of a different kind, but just as satisfying. Many of my roses tell an interesting story.Hope you are enjoying your Easter break.
