This is Ophelia the first rose in the garden to flower and the last to stop flowering. It was my mothers favourite rose and i could safely say its also one of mine. Here it is rambling all over the barn.

Below are a couple of shots of our entertaining areas; when the sun goes down on one deck we go out to the other and follow the sun . At first the deck in the photo to our right was gravel up to the doors but we were finding it quite messy and gravel was going in the house all the time. So we decided to pave another area with a step down and a retaining wall around it. Gradually we put the hedge around and put pots etc to make the area more homely.

What a beautiful home and lovely areas to sit outside your attention to details is wonderful.....you must feel very proud of all you have achieved.......

Such a lovely rose. The old ramblers and climbers seem to always put on a show even when others don't.
I usually have some roses flowering by now but it's been so cold here in the Blue Mountains mine are still just tight buds. Snow is forecast for this weekend so I guess that will set them back even further. Oh well, something to look forward to, but then there always is in the garden.
Have a lovely, if cold weekend. Pamela xx
