And I am way sadder than I thought I was going to be. I have so many little gems in my garden because of Vintage Gardens. What a wonderful business that made such a difference to me. I am so grateful. The roses going into today are Cooper's Burmese and Goldfinch.

I think we will all be perusing our tear-stained Vintage catalogues this winter.

Give them a little shade. It's going to be pretty warm in 22 today.

I have my next to last orders planted in pots and in partial shade - the next order to come will be the very last one - what a sad day that will be! I am planning a very larger parterre bed with birdbath in the middle to house these roses once they get ready to plant in the ground, along with all the others I have ordered the last couple of years. Will call it my Vintage Memorial Garden......it wont compensate for the huge loss of Vintage, but will be a place where I can enjoy them all together.....planning to have a vintage looking garden shed/grandchildren playhouse constructed, a hanging swing......Wish they would find some extras and have just one more release......still cant believe they are closing.

I planted one of my three final Vintage roses over the weekend, 'Frances Ashton'.

'Shower of Gold' and 'W. Freeland Kendrick' are in pots, waiting for me to prepare climber-sized spots for them.

Sad to lose Vintage, but rejoice that they were here and that we have such wonderful roses to enjoy in our gardens because of them.

very envious of those who can grow Cooper's Burmese, PekeM.....but Goldfinch is currently my absolute favourite, blooming this moment . Apart from its short bloom cycle, there is nothing to dislike about this gorgeous rose - utterly healthy with perfectly sized wee flowers....,
