A thorn in my side

24 Feb

This small rose is a new one for me, having a dislike of garden roses with all the thorns and black spot and just as the flowers come out it rains and ruins the flowers. I have always thought it would be good to have a small one ever since 20years ago when I saw one of Ruth Stafford Jones. I even had a cutting from hers that I have had all that time and still looks much as it did then and has ever only had one tiny but beautiful creamy white double flower.
This one I have no idea on flower colour, but that’s the fun to wait and see. I know it has flowered well due to all the hips. So with the buds starting to move it was time to trim it, I guess this is not going to be a high maintenance plant to keep. Time will tell if this will be a thorn in my side or a joy to keep.

With autumn colours starting to make way to winter images. This maple still has a good coat on.
