ROSES IN WINTER (冬のバラ)

My wife arranged cut flowers of roses in our main garden.

The roses are;
 Rosa 'Apollo' (light yellow), Rosa 'Mary Rose' (pink), Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll' (dark pink) and Rosa 'Pat Austin' (dark yellow).  Gertrude Jekyll has a wonderful scent even in Winter.



After a two-night trip to Kyoto, some petals of the roses had fallen.  We took a cup of tea in the afternoon yesterday, while watching a video recorded episode of Dawnton Abbey broadcasted lately.



It was a lovely relaxed time for us two.

  1. I still have a flower or two on my Gertrude Jekyll, even after the heavy winds we have had. It is such a lovely rose.
