A rose by any other name…

St John's Wood

I’ve featured this garden before – I wish I was taller so I could see over its high wall. It’s stuffed with trees, climbers and some amazing pots, which I glimpsed momentarily the other day when the gate was open and the maid (yes, you did read that correctly) was putting the recycling out.

Anyway this rose, climbing on the wall, has been in bud for weeks and is now beginning to flower! In April! It’s all too much!

The same rose also climbs up the front of the house, intertwined with a white wisteria. The house is painted pale grey, which gives the cottagey combo a contemporary twist.
