In my garden this week

We're growing mange tous this year for the first time.  These are a golden variety which grow to 7 feet, and they seem to be most of the way there already!  I suspect the rather flimsy cane support will need to be reinforced when the July and August rains lash down!  They also come with rather dinky little two-tone purple flowers, which you can see if you click the picture to enlarge it, and which are an unexpected bonus.

And yes, they are leaning over to the left, as a result of being so close to the bramley apple tree.  Too bad!
