At the beginning of the year, all the Roses were in a bad way after a terrible wet season and cyclone season. It's taken some loving care and attention, but finally the shrubs are looking healthy and happy and blooming prolifically.
Thank goodness, I say, because I've never grown Roses before and really had no idea how to care for them. But it seems I've been doing the right thing so far.
Unfortunately, they will have to remain nameless as there were no labels to be found and the previous occupiers of the building had no idea of the varietal names.
... but it's this gorgeous specimen that has won my heart. It starts out as this brilliant orangey colour, but then fades to almost a pinky peach.
