Here are some impressions of my Spring garden at the moment, the roses are still slowly starting to bloom; Let's take a leisurely walk through the garden so you can have a good look! The front garden often puts on its Spring flush earlier than the back, I think that's because each year I tend to do the Winter pruning in the front first; although the David Austin roses seem to be taking their time, even when they are in the front garden! These pink buds below are David Austin Rose "Heritage". I tried to get pictures from a different angle so that I'm not showing the same old same old each year, I hope you are not tired of my garden photos by now. I added two David Austin's Gertrude Jekylls to the front garden at the end of last Summer, they tend to naturally be more cane-y, so I'm training them up a "tripod" - rather three wooden stakes I put together; the "tripods" should look nice when they are covered. The back garden's roses mostly still look like these-- heaps of buds! So, I'm eagerly anticipating. Some of the roses which are in flower in the back garden.
