Golden Celebration

Well, the unexpected 37c October day did frizzle the first flowers on a few roses, but to make up for it my Golden Celebration (David Austin) has really gone to town with the blooms this year! Better late than ever, it had always been somewhat lacklustre before. This is one of the roses i experimentally 'self-pegged' and looks like this was a complete success. I'm super happy with it at the moment!
