I don't know what it is with my roses this year. Some of them are doing exceedingly well, the others are behaving strange. The New Dawn roses have more flowers than I can remember. The Zepherine Drouhin is her old beautiful self. So are Gertrude Jekyll, Leornado da Vinci and Pierre de Ronsard. Coral Dawn keeps on flowering. Paul's Himalayan Dream and Veilchenblau are still very pretty. Thanks to the roses and the Delphiniums, the middle part of my garden looks beautiful.
However, in my front garden, nothing much is happening. Waltz time, William Shakespeare and Constance Spry are full of leaves, but there are no buds to be seen. I am not really sure what is wrong. They all have a sunny position, they don't seem to have any strange diseases and I feed them regularly. I think it must be the soil. Although I don't understand. We are gardening on heavy clay. It is said that roses don't mind about heavy clay at all. I don't know what I can do to help them. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. They are very welcome!
Have a lovely Wednesday!
