It’s pouring. If you’re a Fair Weather Gardener what can you do when it’s raining but plan ahead? So that’s what I’m doing today.

I’d planned to go out and tidy up a bit – weeds are beginning to emerge – but stuff it, a bit of online seed and plant shopping is in order.

This is Rosa Veilchenblau. She’s a rambler and likes a bit of shade, so since we have an east facing front then I’m going to try her out there. Hopefully, she’ll grow up the front wall of the house and then I’ll coax her around the window. Country cottage feel in Leith.

I am not a huge fan of roses. In fact I’ve been trying to murder one out the back for over a year. But I like the sound of Rosa Veilchenblau. She has a rich orange scent and NO thorns. And apparently the flowers can appear almost blue on occasions. I have a bluey/purpley theme going on out front (lavenders, alliums, echinops and – fingers crossed – delphiniums). I don’t like thorns. I like a fragrance. Me and Rosa V were made for each other.
