This year, during May 2012, the Rhododendrons have been quite splendid!
A special Jubilee rose was planted to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on Sunday 3rd June 2012. We will eagerly watch it's progress, as it was planted alongside the two roses which were planted for the Queen's Golden Jubilee, ten years ago. These two, are a beautiful golden yellow; time will tell what the colour the new one will be!
Well, much to our delight, it turns out to be yellow, just like the other two golden jubilee roses ! .......Here it is below left; along with three views of some of the other roses in our garden. Below that is a glorious pink floribunda outside the vestry door.
