    What a handsome cat!

    I had a beloved 13yr old Labrador called Phar, that had to be put down in 2010 and is much missed.

    Thank you Wintersong - he was indeed a handsome chap and very affectionate too. He loved his little garden and its not the same without him. Although i did scatter his ashes in a huge pot of Stipa grass. He used to love to attack mine so i felt it fitting. He rests outside my patio door where i can keep any eye on him. image

    Sorry to hear you also suffered a loss. Phar absence must have been devastating. 13 years for a dog is quite something although i know that is of no comfort to yourself. My boy was 9 and i still felt cheated.

    Take care.

    I have contacted my keen rose growing friends in South Africa and the Netherlands and there a number of rare 'Oscar' roses. They will take some hunting down if you decide on a rose (I always would) so here goes -

    Oskar Kordel (Oskar Cordel), Hybrid Perpetual, medium to deep pink, breed 1897 by Lambert. it's only available by two nurseries world wide: Chill Out Roses in Chugiak, USA and Hortico in Canada

    Oskar Scheerer (Orscar Scheerer), Shrub Rose, dark red, breed by Kordes in 1961, available at 4 nurseries world wide: Les Roses Anciennes de Andre Eve, France; Pepinieres Loubert, France; Pepinieres Prayssacoises, France; La Rosarie Du Berry, France

    Oscar Chauvry, Noisiette, medium pink breed 1900 by Chauvry is available only from: La Rosarie du Desert, France

    Thanks for the information Paul. Its nice to know. My garden at the moment is pretty full and i have to leave certain gaps for Bertie the badger and Yakkerty the fox. But i appreciate you searching.

  • We have tulips called Oscar.  Quite an attractive shade of red and not too tall.

    Oh really. They would look super in a pot. Where did you get them from?
