There are lilies, I love lilies but this year I have almost vowed never to grow them again, lily beetles caused me so much trouble, On Friday I had to cut and dispose of lily flowers that hadn,t even had chance to open . They had been stripped of leaves over night and, the buds almost eaten away They were so infested I put on rubber gloves, I could not bear to pick the little wretches off
The other flowers are two rose bushes I bought this week . David Austin roses, The pink one is Chapeau de Napoleon . When in bud it has three fluffy green sepals that I presume are like Napoleons hat, the actual flower is heavily scented and,so beautiful .
The yellow one is Golden celebration, it also is heavily scented, I planted them today . I just about have space for one more climber. I,m looking for Pierre de Ronsard . Elizabethd recommended . I have been looking all summer to no avail . I will not give up .
