Anyways - I planted three types of pale pink David Austens. Over years of gardening on The Farm I have learnt not to put all my eggs in one basket. After much deliberation and careful research I chose the three varieties I thought would do well. The Farmer then went to the rose nursery to pick them up. The rose nursery man then told him I had chosen the wrong types and gave him three other pale pink David Austen varieties that would do well in our area.
Well, thank heavens for the rose nursery man as the roses are all looking super duper healthy and are about to have their first flush. Needless to say I am very excited.
Look - roses, kicking ass in The Farmhouse garden.
There are even some with flowers.

The photos seem to be a deeper pink than the roses in real life. The gorgeousness is the same though.
In other garden news we had further snake sightings after my last post. Scary. (Particularly the large slithering reptile that chose to have a close look at my back door mat while I was having coffee with a friend.) I have resorted to gardening in this sort of attire. Even when it is not raining.

I don't think the Queen needs to use her gum boots for this purpose. Although as my friend pointed out - she does have all those corgies.
Hope all is going well in your world.
Oh - I almost forgot. Read this over at Adelaide Villa on cleaning silver. I am very excited.
