Monday Vase: the New Rose
This is the first bloom from the David Austin rose "Crown Princess Margareta". She is part of the new rose border being created across the back of the patio, e.g. on a perpendicular line to the main garden. We are using varieties that will (hopefully) grow large and give a sense of enclosure to the area. Five roses have been growing there since early February, when they arrived as bare root orders from the US branch of David Austin. Margareta is the first to open. She is lovely.
Though my post is rather late, I am of course linking to Cathy's Monday Vase meme, where one can go to find many wonderful projects that take material from the garden to create a touch of beauty indoors.
