|Souvenir de Malmaison|
This is the time of the year that is difficult to have a garden here ...with the scorching sun and lack of water makes it so hard to keep plants alive. As our only water supply is from the rain that falls, to fill up our water-tanks, and without the rain, we have to resort to buying water from a tanker, to fill them.
A few weeks back I looked at my roses and they did not look healthy} Quelle horreur! they were on the way out.
After much loving tender care, with rose food, mulch and water thankfully they are now looking good, with rich green leaves and flowering beautifully again, so happy that I can take a few photos of them again, to share with you.
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"
from Romeo and Juliet
~ William Shakespeare
Here's to a lovely week in your corner of the world.
