Barely a week.
But that's okay, it meant I got to got out and cut a new bunch.
One, a gorgeous bright yellow, the other, my favourite dark red.
So I cut just one of each of those. I can't take them all, it's a community garden and others might want some.
The red has the most amazing fragrance.
They're all scented, but the red is the one that is now fragrancing my whole kitchen.
Because they're right by the front door too, I get to smell them as soon as I walk in from work.
I just love them.
I brought my four surviving rose cuttings with me and I think I'll plant them in among the others, there's plenty of room and I don't think anyone will mind.
(Someone else has recently put in a new lavender)
They'll be better off in the ground anyway.
