|Rose - White Cloud - 01 June 2015|
Saturday, 10 October 2015
Friday turned out to be another lovely autumn day. Again it was a cool start to the day but even though it was less sunny than yesterday it didn't feel too bad in any afternoon sunshine.
I've written a few blog posts about plants attempting a second crop. These have included pears, grapes and figs. None of these attempts at second crops have succeeded.
While it's not a true second crop our rose White Cloud still has flower buds to come. It was in flower on the 01 June this year as you can see from the picture above. A few weeks ago I'm sure that there were no signs of any flowers to come and I thought flowering had finished for the year but I was wrong.
Today we have a couple of flowers out and plenty of buds. It's just a question of how long the weather will remain decent before the buds begin to rot rather than open. Still we can't complain when we have flowers at the beginning of October.
The forecast at the moment seems to be for high pressure to be in charge, possibly for the next couple of weeks, resulting in dry weather but with some pretty chilly nights.
