I started last weekend early and sneaked out in the weak Wednesday afternoon sun to get a few things done. The Under-Gardener wasn’t impressed, but felt duty bound to supervise. Thyme was on his side (sorry).
A series of obligatory frost photos follows.
David Austin sent me the wrong rose. Since they are an exceptionally good company, they told me to keep it and sent me the right one at no extra charge. Both roses have been settled in and given a nice blanket of manure. You can never have too many roses!
