Survivors of the move...


...and of That Winter...

Windermere is in bloom - the stems are very long and supple, searching for sun, so the rose tends to be top heavy. Not bad for the four or so hours it receives, but not ideal, either, if you are a rose. Re-bloom will be much slower than on the sunny Cobble Hill terrace. Interestingly, the rose blooms themselves are much more beautiful than in their previous, very hot position, where they tended to be pinched.


The Brooklyn-transplant strawberries are ripening, very sweet, fewer fruit than before (also to be expected) but happy enough to be putting out long runners.
