This rose, growing up through a tree at the edge of the garden, has been covered in buds for weeks. I thought, crikey, that's one heck of a Dog Rose - it will look so beautiful when it flowers. Well, the first bloom unfolded this week, and now overnight (it rained so it had a good drink) more have unfolded. NOT a Dog Rose, but rambler. I thought, hang on a minute, I know that rose . . .
It couldn't be more familiar in fact - it's a Paul's Himalayan Musk! Well, if that doesn't underline this house was meant for us I don't know what does!!
