I thought I'd show you a few garden photos. Here is my Tea rose, Duchess de Brabant. I loved this description of her - "The cupped pink flowers have a cabbagey roundness to them, as if picked from a luscious old rose painting". ( in 'Guide to Antique Roses' at http://www.roseinfo.com/ )
One of the ferns in my 'tropical' garden. I can't remember it's name but it seems to be growing nicely in the dappled shade.
