Garden Flowers In Charity Shop Vases.

This red rose is a cutting I took last autumn.  My brother bought the rose for my mother before she passed on.  He was moving to another house and asked me to take a cutting because he could not take the climbing rose with him.  I planted it this spring in one of our borders and its flowered.  The vase is the one I paid a Euro for at the charity shop,  Do you remember?

A Rugosa rose from our back garden.  They are a seaside rose and make a great hedge and are salt resisitan too.  The vase is one of the sundae glasses I paid 50 Cents for.  You can see the bay in the background.

A purple rose.  My dad bought my wife this rose before he also passed on.  I managed to propagate this too.  This is our other kitchen window.
Loosestrife from the garden.  I brought this plant from England in a wheelie bin.  Don't think its the original one though.  You  know what I am like for making new plants.  You can see Beara peninsula behind the washing spin around gizmo!

  2. I love the roses, roses are my favourite flowers. The purple colour is very unusual. You have been successful with your propagating. Great views from the window. Thanks Dave.

    1. Hi Rachel. That Elvis Costello song comes to mind: A good year for the roses. Perhaps you could make a rose bed in your lovely Norfolk garden? The hedgerows are full of some wonderful wild roses in bloom at the moment. Its a mizzle morning here in West Cork and the the flowers are loving the soft rain. Thanks!

    2. There are several climbing roses along the wall here, all out at the moment, and I planted a rose bush when I moved in.

    3. Good to read Rachel. I think I will collect some new roses. There's even one rose called Bantry Bay. I must buy one of those.

  3. Beautiful roses. They were my mother's favorite, and my dad enjoyed growing them.

    1. Thank you Joanne. They are a thing of beauty and well worth collecting and propagating.

  4. Magnificent purple rose. What a colour. A lovely lot of flowers on sundae vases!

  5. Hi LA. Yes its a beauty and its got sentimental value too. I think roses would make present for any loved ones garden. Thanks!

  6. I love roses yet I have none in my garden. It's too late to bother now. Brilliant view from your window. I am a tad jealous.

  7. Hi Valerie. The rains removed a lot of the rose petals overnight. I hope they flower again. I won't plant anything in the garden unless it flowers. Wish I had planted a hedge like Rugosa instead of griselini.

    The view is good when its nice but you wouldn't want to be here when its blowing an Atlantic gale in winter. Thanks.

  8. Its great you have been able to propagate those roses, Dave, to keep the continuity going. They look good

  9. Thanks Philip. Roses are another plant to collect. I have had success propagating wild ones too and they are planted in the garden with the cultivated garden roses.

  10. The bay in the background provides the perfect backdrop for your window flowers.

  11. Hi Gwil. Yes its a good vista. We don't need a water feature do we? Thanks!

A Jug Of Punch.

We decided  to make a pan of cider punch the other night.  It's really cheap to make and easy.  We bought ours from the German garden...
