I love visiting other people's gardens so when the Australian Open Garden Scheme commences in the Spring I like to see as many as I can.
I always come home full of enthusiasm and ideas for my own garden. I think my enthusiasm got the better of me this week. In an effort to replicate the lushness of the garden we visited most recently, I started flinging about handfuls of sheep manure. Now, despite the beautiful weather, I have to keep all the doors and windows closed because the smell is suffocating me and the flies are in fly heaven.
This beautiful rose, Chicago Peace, is in Melissa & Stewart's garden.
My garden is looking pretty at the moment, but I can't go outside to take a photo because I don't have a gas mask.
