Ragged Roses.

 We have been told to expect a really hot and dry summer which will be very hard on the garden.
Although we have 6 large water tanks, keeping water up to the vegetable garden and the flower gardens will be a challenge. Being early spring now, we are enjoying the roses, especially since they are ragged and droopy with rain!
 We can of course use mains water for the garden, but not only does that cost more than rain water, as it should, but it goes against the grain to use perfectly drinkable water on the garden.
 For now we just enjoy the occasional shower and although it wrecks the roses we welcome the wreckage!
      We have other roses that aren't in flower just yet, so they may escape being battered.
