Roses are Red…

It’s impossible for any mortal man to describe the beauty of a single rose adequately, especially if the man, who attempts has eyes to see and a sense of smell and a limited command of language.
What I do know is how to keep a rose plant happy in a fairly unconventional manner. Instead of pruning back heavily or de-bud  to force on more and bigger flowers, I tend now to prune only when absolutely necessary and tend to braid the shoots together, to form different shapes and form and let nature take its course.

Rose craft is what I call this practice, it’s a lot more fun, you hardly need tools and you do not see as many scars.
