Arvid`s garden, Lista, Norway the 14th of august 2010. The photo shows part of my garden as seen from under stems of "Gerbe Rose", for the moment without flowers. The clematis to the right is "Etoile Violette". The ground cover rose at the bottom is "Viking". The clematis in the background is "Negritjanka", above which are seen flowers of "Tradition" and Burghausen and a single flower of "Emelie". Those of you who would expect to see "Alberic Barbier" accompanying "Etoile Violette" will be just as disappointed as I am. It froze down to almost nothing last winter, only slowly coming back. I keep my fingers crossed. Just to be sure, I planted another one next to it. A few flowers of "Westerland" can be seen to the left.

.Arvid`s garden, Lista, southwestern coast of Norway. Photo taken on the 7th of July 2008. Even though almost two years have passed since this photo was taken, the top of the aluminium arche is still bare. The reason for this being the strong salty western winds which have a nasty habit of finding their way right on to this arche. The fence is not tall enough to stop them. I had a big wild cherry tree here that helped a lot, but unfortunately it had to be cut down. I have planted a new one and a few elders. Time will show. In the meantime I have given up on some of the roses here and planted a local wild honeysuckle as an "infill". Roses in photo are "Honorine de Brabant (to the left of the arche) with some flowers of the clematis "Mrs Cholmondeley", "Lykkefund" (scrambling up the appletree), "Mme Plantier" (white rose on the arche) with a few flowers of "Etude". "American Pillar" and "Sander`s White Rambler" are covering my gazebo in the background. A bit of "Paul`s Himalayan Musk" may be seen on the archeway top left. The red gable belongs to my neighbour`s garage.

Believing this part of my garden unsuitable for roses, I have now slowly started to "fill in" a number of them, waiting to see how it will work out. Only the rugosas and a "Rose de Provins" have done very well here up till quite recently. The main reason why I have been a bit reluctant to plant roses here is that the soil gets quite saturated in times of heavy rainfalls. This part of my garden has on occasions turned into a big pool, and the water may take days to sink. Heavy rainfalls in late autumn and winter may turn into a catastrophe if followed by frost to make the "pool" freeze over. According to the Swedish rose expert Lars Åke Gustavsson the arvensis hybrids are supposed to be tolerant of wet soils, so I have planted three here up cherry and apple trees (none of them in bloom here).Unfortunately few of the roses are in bloom. There are a few flowers on "Knock Out" and" F.J. Grootendorst"(supposed to be a Pink Grootendorst), and a budding "Applejack". Other roses here are "Signe Relander", "Nevada", "Maiden`s Blush", "Adelaide Hoodless","Paula Vapelle","Blush Damask", "Mrs Anthony Waterer""White Roadrunner" and "Romantic Roadrunner". Not visible in the photo is a favourite spot around which I have planted " Wasagaming", "Rose de Rescht", "Therese Bugnet", "William Lobb" and "Golden Wings" (so far) Another problem is of course shadow from the fruit trees. Time will show how it works out. The tall perennials with yellow flowers are a favourite, as well as a mystery, as I have been unable to find their name in any of my books. The photo was taken on the 31st of July 2011.

Arvid`s winter garden, Lista. This photo taken on the 7th of January 2010 shows my house and part of my garden on a clear and fosty winter day. Until right before Christmas 2009 I had both roses and clematises flowering in my garden. Then came the north eastern winds along bringing us real winter for the first time in many many years. And snow for Christmas. Christmas 2009 was the ninth White Christmas at Lista in the last 50 years. So it doesn`t happen very often. Now the odd thing is that temperatures have been around 0 and below; mostly below ,down to -11C, ever since. And there seems to be no end to it. This is very unusual at Lista. But most of Europe has been affected. Although we have had an alltime low of -23C here during the war and -18C in"my time", it has never been this protracted before as I can remember. It seldom lasts more than a week or so at the most. I must admit that it has had me a bit worried for my plants. Luckily there is a thick snow cover. Usually there is barefrost here, which would have been a disaster under these circumstances. I hate this, and I hope it will never happen again. Fortunately I`ll be on my way to India come Feb 2nd.

So much for keeping my fingers crossed for my once enormous Alberic Barbier.The pride of my garden I dare say. After the first harsh winter of 2009/2010 it came back very slowly, which made me nourish some feeble hopes of it being restored. The second harsh winter in a row, however, sent it down memory lane for good. As you can see, only the withered canes of this once glorious rose are left now. I have decided to keep them for memory`s sake, hoping that the two new plants of this rose, which I have resently planted will reach the glorious heights of their predecessor eventually. I still keep my fingers crossed. Well, I know what you are thinking, but I guess it wouldn`t hurt anyway. Leverkusen and Purity have also been reduced some, but they are luckily still there. Other roses in the photo are: Felicite et Perpetue, Emelie, and Burghausen, and one flower of Gerbe Rose( far left); together with the top part of an enormous clematis Etoile Violette. On the bright side I now have a better view in all directions from the sitting place underneath the arches (not visible in the photo). The photo was taken on the 31st of July 2011.

This photo taken in my garden on the 13th of July 2009 shows the large rambler "Felicite et Perpetue "covering most of an archway together with a smaller "Pink Cloud". All the way to the left on the archway is a big "Rosa Multiflora" unfortunately a bit "washed out" by the light. The big red rose up front right is "Burghausen". In the background may be seen a small part of an elder tree planted to fend off the often strong salty northwest winds. When overlooking this part of my garden I dare say it has done an excellent job performing this crucial task.
