The light at the end of the day has a beautiful quality. The David Austin roses (‘William Shakespeare’ and ‘Graham Thomas’) are heavily in bud, and well-staked and sprayed, so I hope we will have a good show this year after the unkind weather last year.
I enjoyed the evening, and the flowers, with a glass of pink wine, but I would have liked to share the enjoyment. I remembered something a friend once said – ‘My soul is lonely’.
I recently added ‘William Shakespeare’ to my rose collection; the half opened flowers look like red velvet and I think it will become a favourite.
I am sure you will love this generous rose, and the scent, which I couldn’t post, is absolutely luxurious
