We had a heavy frost one morning and my husband went out and took photos of the roses, they look like they have been sprinkled with icing sugar. :wink: :D This rose is a white iceberg

I'm speechless!!!!
Tai Chi - Mind, body and spirit are all exercised simultaneously. The continuous flowing movements of Tai Chi are based on the principle that running water never stagnates. The gentle movements relax your muscles while strengthening your body and mind.

That is really lovely - did you happen to get one of the garden rimed up?

It does look like it should be on a wedding cake, This rose is one of my standard icebergs that line the drive way so theres no gardens underneath, but i had a thought today :-? that i might put a garden all the way along under the standards with some more bush roses :idea:
