Almost all of our roses are climbers and suddenly seem to appear in mid June. Paul's Himalayan musk soars way above us near the greenhouse and the beautiful white one is expanding daily on the Portuguese laurel beside the bonfire pile and compost bins.
Little Rosa moysii with its scarlet flowers is busy with bees beside the vegetable patch.
We can't grow smaller roses because the roe deer eat them all- a favourite of theirs. But these roses in the sky are at least out of their reach!
