And my husband mows it with a push mower! We are the second to last house on the road, the trees in the background are national forest. Such an awesome place to live!

I can imagine that, but I assume, that the camera was a bit tilted when taking that shot.

It was :) trying to get more of the roses in :) it is still a steep property though. If we owned it I would do terraced gardens with rock retaining walls, but it isn't ours.

I don't seem to be able to upload references at the moment, so could someone who has access add this one to 'Mrs B.R. Cant' please?
It is from The Garden: An Illustrated Weekly Journal of Horticulture in All its Branches
13 October 1900, p278 and has an accompanying b&w photograph (added to HMF photos).
The text reads:

Mrs B.R. Cant

The accompanying illustration represents a new Tea Rose raised by Messrs. Benjamin Cant and Sons in their nursery at Colchester, and appropriately named after Mrs. B. R. Cant, widow of our friend 'Ben,' as we affectionately regarded him. As reported in The Garden of September 29, page 255, an award of merit of the Royal Horticultural Society was given unanimously to this Tea Rose, and we are not surprised at the decision. It is a Rose of remarkable vigour, so much so that in rows of Tea Roses its strong and abundant shoots are conspicuous, and the distinct pretty blue-green colour of the leaves is almost sufficient in itself to make the variety of some importance in the garden. In addition to this virtue, there is the crimson colouring of the new shoots and sweetly-scented flowers of deep rose, with broad and long petals, and every plant, until frost bids all blossoms depart, is loaded with buds and open flowers.

Thanks Billy. We will add it when we can. In the meantime, I have added the "blue-green" description of the foliage to the main page.

I cannot get the Advanced Search to work.
Any suggestions?

Reply #1 of 2 posted 3 days ago by Jay-Jay
It seems not to work for me either. Only with 3 criteria it works, but at four... no way.

I actually found the problem on my end.
My premium membership had expired (how embarrassing).
Once I paid and re-started Firefox Advanced Search worked for me.

Hope that helps.
