One is born every day

The few roses we have in the garden are starting to look lovely now.   The bush by the remains of the plum tree has sprouted suckers from below where the red rose has been grafted on.

Normally the suckers grow like mad at the expense of the wanted flowers, but both seem to be growing profusely here.

It does mean we have a much better display with the red 'cultivated' roses mixed in amongst the wild rose from the suckers.

We shall see how vigorous the suckers become over the summer, but I am inclined to leave them as long as possible.
