Probably like most people’s Roses they give us great colour and perfume across the summer months…some of the first real bright spots in the garden.  Then they fall into a dry stupor as the days get hotter and drier.

Then they seem to shake off the summer blues and give us a refreshed burst of blooms…. may be not as large or as full  but just as perfect to welcome the approach of autumn.

Reaching for the Sky…

As it Friday and the 2nd September I thought I would finish the week and the start of a new month celebrating the summer’s growth in the woodland here about.

Tree’s reaching for the sky, stretching upwards to the gaps in the woodland canopy.
