On Wednesday myself and the posse went on a Plant Heritage trip to Cannington Walled Garden and The Bishop’s Palace garden in Wells. Although a little soggy a good time was had by all.
One of my highlight was this rose named Rhapsody in Blue. As you can see, if we were to get picky about it, it isn’t strictly blue, more of a mauvey colour. However we can forgive it for this small misdemeanour. It was full of bud, fragrant and, as I later found out, a repeat flower. It is not however, contrary to a vicious rumour that was circulating to the detriment of one Maggie Maynt, thornless. We live and learn. She managed to staunch the bleeding eventually.
This was just one of many highlights. I wonder how many highlight you are allowed? If there were too many it would just be classed as, “a great day all around” which of course it was. But there were things that were extra special. Like this rose.
Anyway, as luck would have it they had one for sale in the plant centre. What you have to guess is, what happened next?
