I pruned… I battled aphids…
…all to see if I could still have a flowering rose on Christmas Day.
Would you believe it ~ I actually did!
One single, solitary pink rose.
I tried to take a picture for you on Christmas Day and Boxing Day but to no avail because the rain did not stop.
However, I managed to get out there today and it looks like this:
A very sorry looking rose.
So a sort of success – with proof – even if it’s a little mouldy!
Here’s to trying again next year!
