Since I’ve been so lax in updating the blog this summer I’m in serious need of catching up on photos. There are so many things I haven’t posted about – such as butterfly photos – and for some strange reason the wordpress reader isn’t showing many of your posts and even removed some of you so I’ve had to refollow again. So apologies, it’s not that I intentionally deleted some people.
This summer has been quite disappointing, it hasn’t been hot and it hasn’t been cold. But it’s been a little too cold to comfortably sit outside in the evening. I get home from work at around 4:30 and it’s really hot, but by 6 the temperature has nose-dived and there’s been a perpetual wind since winter which is taking it from a lovely mild breeze to goose-pimple inducing.
So actually I am also feeling somewhat disconnected from the garden, which is obviously very sad as normally I spend almost every evening sat outside enjoying watching the insects and falling asleep on a blanket.
Today I think it’s time for our annual Harlow Carr rose feature. Her blooms begin a lovely deep, blueish pink and fade to a softer pink just before they drop.
To be honest I thought I had more sunset rose photos… But I couldn’t find them. I think they may still be on the camera waiting to be uploaded. So, this feature is much shorter than I had anticipated.

I love pink roses,so beautiful! 🙂
I’ve been having problems with WordPress too, I’ve asked people to re subscribe so that they receive an e.mail and this seems to be working but I’m still missing lots of comments on my posts.
Your Harlow Carr rose is really beautiful, I hope your weather soon warms up!
Lovely photos. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice pictures 🙂
The images of the lovely pink roses are beautiful, evocative of the warm evenings which, I agree, have sadly been so rare this summer.
