....more Rose Garden notes...2020

As I take an insane number of pictures, I thought it best to start my own thread, rather than clutter up any other... if anyone is looking in, thank you, and I hope you see something of interest... I aim to keep this going for maybe 5 or 6 weeks...
My roses are not for everybody, but I have some unusual ones this year, so let's see how that goes.
I do not spray roses and tolerate just about everything that's living here...

Some years are best forgotten, this is one... I'm trying to pretend it never happened.. maybe you are too.. ?
I love these lavender Tulips, they've been in flower for exactly a month.. they might be called 'Alibi', but label gone missing..

'Zephirine Drouhin' [Bourbon 1868] just starting main flush.. growing over a Daphne bush..

'Desdemona' and 'Anne Boleyn' roses..

..another shot of 'Anne Boleyn'..

'Mme. Lauriol de Barny' [Bourbon 1868]

..with 'Kew Gardens'... full flush in about a week I think..

..more to follow..

    Yes! So glad your rose garden notes is back this year. I enjoyed it so much last year I’ve got to bookmark it straight away 😊 I love the ancient mariner’s scent too.. if I hadn’t already had three pinks already (and limited space) I would have bought it in a heart beat.

    ..thanks Adrian.. so kind...  I shall still be keeping in touch with the other thread, looking at all the photos everyone posts... but mine will just get in the way there a bit..
    ..some nice foliage this evening, on other plants I have..
    Berberis 'Admiration'...

    Berberis 'Bagatelle'... a passing vehicle sliced off the front of this plant... it

    Hypericum moserianum... I like this foliage and it's a first rate plant...

    Camellia 'Spring Festival'.. nice dark burnished leaves..

    ..fresh green on Aster frikartii 'Monch'...

    'Mme. Lauriol de Barny' really floats my boat. But 'Marie Pavie' has got me thinking about why I can't squeeze in some dwarf polyantha roses in my own garden...

    ..I'm sure you can Will... it's also very healthy, continuous bloom and needs little attention... that's Marie Pavie...   
    ...thanks for looking in here too..

    I miss my roses. Got some bare root ones and have had them in pots over the winter. I want to plant them in a border where azaleas and pieris are doing well - acid soil -I can't get a testing kit anywhere ? Would I be OK doing this? Previous experience of roses has always been on clay.
