All Change in Shady Corner


All Change in Shady Corner

Today I gave up and removed my beautiful rose 'Souvenir Du Docteur Jamain'. It was so ugly. All covered in mildew and all the flower buds damaged by sun, wind and rain. It was growing far too vigorously but not healthy at all, and I am trying to cut down on spraying, so unhealthy roses have to go. Oh well.

Thanks Bathgate. Yes, it doesn’t look worse forit, in fact I think its better.

The white Rose is looking lovely, & it does look OK with nothing on the other side. A nice little area. I like the combination of gravel & paving, & the grass is nice & lush.

Thanks Feverfew. Scott is sad. It was his favourite rose...but he can see why it had to go.

What a shame, but I understand, we have trouble with Compassion, that might have to go...........

It’s always sad to have to get rid of a plant, especially a favourite but, once it’s gone, you can often see that you have made an improvement. The white rose is beautiful!

It is always disappointing when something doesn't flourish in our gardens and it is a hard decision to make to get rid of it. Something even nicer might take its place, I am sure it will.

We have a tulip tree planted in the wrong place and much as we love it, it will have to go.
