#2 and #4 cuttings putting out growth as well as rooted cutting of Belinda's Dream.
Unknown rooted cutting blooming. Long leaf-like sepals that completely reflexed upon the bloom opening. Possibly another Cl. Clotilde Soupert or an accidental Bolero. Fragrance strong and pleasant, but with a familiar ammonia ending.
Contemplated my yesterdays' "lamentation"(journal) and pitied the member, that works the soil and plants rose/trees and or shrubs in the garden "Rocks and Roses".
That has to be a heck of a job, unless one has a small crane at his/her disposal.... Hats off!!!
Today, I planted some unknown found roses, some unnamed Himmelsauge seedlings and of-course some known roses with names tagged.
And an old apple variety too of a 19th century seedling-society: the "Lunterse Pippeling".
When I dug a hole, I encountered a big slab of concrete at a depth of 60 cm. Had to be a less lazy gardener, for at first I wanted to dug just a small hole.... instead it got deeper and wider and wider.
Now I understand, why that part of the garden was that dry, or too wet when rain fell.
Now the slab is removed and the small/tiny apple-tree planted, no-one can guess what a heck of a job that was.
Hopefully the tree will reward me with long lasting and tasty apples the oncoming years.
Moved two 'Zaide' to pool room.
