Vanity amongst mayflowers.
My favourite iris this season.

These sweeties smell like turkish delight...
And are as thorny as the devil!
Such a shame that they only flower once
and only for around 2 weeks.
Last year the flowers shrivelled
without opening. Rescued from old sites in central Victoria.

A glory of roses!

Another cloudburst (24mls) overnight has brought out the spiciness of the rose bank.
I have been trying to work out which ones I have: this one is
Paul Ridault, the others quatre saisons, pompon blanc parfait??
Centrefolias anyway, from my mother's garden transplanted here and doing well.
