Not in this Yorkshire lass' garden........
My hubby has been in the throes of fixing up our front garden for the last three years but we could not agree what to plant. I wanted palms and easy plants, he wanted flowering shrubs. I want mass planting, he wants a variety of individual shrubs
This weekend we had another chat and agreed that we would both like to see roses in the garden so we drove down to the garden centre and picked out five rose bushes.
Now I am rather fond of pink roses and being originally from Yorkshire, I absolutely love the purity of white roses and we decided to get a couple of yellow to mix it up......but red? Mmmmmm?
Hubby should of known better than to bring it up. "Shall we get a red one?". No red roses In my garden. The nearest I will go is deep pink!
Really, the truth is, It is not about the War of the Roses between Tudors and Yorkists, it is mostly personal preference....I just love Softer shades.
Once back home, hubby got busy digging and planting the new bushes. A couple of them were shrubs already with some blooms and buds but I will have to wait until Summer. Before any signs of life on the other shrubs. Can't wait!
ps.....this post is based on a private family joke and I can assure you that no red roses were harmed in the writing of this post and no offence intended to the House of Tudor.(Please do not chop off my head)
