First Rose and Some Clivias

First rose flower to open:
Rugosa rose - Freycinet? (Not certain as its label has gone missing.)

And this tractor is so handy:
Our neighbours rescued a huge clump of clivias, which they split up to plant along their driveway. One tractor to the rescue! Fifteen or more clivia clumps planted in no time. In return for the use of the tractor, they gave us a great big clivia clump for our own garden.


  1. Oh isn't that wonderful!! Our roses are but a sweet memory right now. we have the gorgeous hues of leaves adorning our trees...hugs, Julierose

  2. Clivias, lucky you, they are so expensive, you have saved yourself a fortune.
