MY SWEET FRANCIS

I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU MY SWEET FRANCIS, HIS FULL NAME IS FRANCIS.E.LESTER AND HE IS A RAMBLER ROSE WHO GROWS TO 6 METERS AND MORE IF HE GETS THE SPACE. MY FRANCIS THOUGH MANAGED TO SELFSEED IN THE MIDDLE OF A SKIMMIA BUSH AND I DON’T HAVE THE HEART TO REMOVE HIM COS HE IS SO PRETTY, HE SMELL’S NICE, BLOOMS FOR MONTHS ON END AND GETS NICE ORANGE BOTTLES IN AUTUMN. I HAVE TO KEEP HIM SMALL BUT HE DOESN’T SEEM TO MIND.

SO HERE HE IS:

I CUT HIM OFTEN SO HE LOOKS LIKE A BUSH INSTEAD OF LIKE A RAMBLER, HE’ ABOUT 1.50 METERS TALL

HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY AND A GREAT WEEK AND THANKS FOR VISITING !
