One evening this week, I was walking to the mailbox in the evening when a spot of peachy color in the front yard caught my eye. What is that? It was my 'Tea Clipper' rose from David Austin English Roses, which doesn't usually bloom until around Memorial Day! I absolutely adore this beautiful, fragrant rose, a birthday gift from my friend Deberah years ago.
She also gave me a pale pink David Austin 'Wedgwood' rose, which will be blooming soon.
And this hosta obviously isn't a David Austin rose, but I'm still so happy my 'Tea and Crumpets' hosta has come back to life. The deer munched it to the ground last year, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to enjoy some of these garden treasures for a bit longer this year!
