I ventured into the garden in the fading light this evening and was delighted to find a beautiful rose blooming:
E’toile de Lyon is Tea rose, quite an old variety having been released in 1881. In my garden this rose is short and sprawling and currently covered in buds. It wins the ‘first rose of the season’ prize by a country mile although I was getting blooms on Margaret Merrill up until I pruned her a month ago.
I still have quite a few roses to prune. Perhaps this weekend 🙂
