Two Spring Beauties.......

Dia Duit, a few years back, in the middle of the drought , we revamped our front garden....as there was no water for the front lawns.....we covered the grassed area with Lilydale crushed rock.......I had a yearning for the Crepscule Weeping Rose.....at that time the cost  was A$120- each.....I had no wish to lose that amount of money on plants.....I did a quick trip into the local Supermarket...and lo and behold there were two of the scraggiest looking Crepscule Roses left....at a princely sum of A$20- each....to look at them now....you would never dream they were one of the same....just magnificient..........
