Agnes and Monsieur Tillier Roses
Hardly any roses grow in the Hen House Gardens these days. But two large beauties seem to have survived my earlier plantings, possibly because they both flower early, before the Oak trees are fully in leaf. They are the yellow Rugosa Agnes and the smudgy old-rose pink Monsieur Tillier.

Some winters I've been determined to shift both out and find them a better, sunnier location. But they seem to have adapted to this garden, and definitely brighten up the greenery with their beautiful colours. Monsieur Tillier is particularly pretty, though his canes tend reach high into the sky, and it's hard to get photographs of his flowers.
