I keep on dreaming

The snow is still here.. and still falling. So I guess it will be a while before we see the roses again. But at least we can dream of them.
Snøen er her fremdeles, og faller enda. Så jeg antar det er en stund til før vi får se rosene igjen. Men i det minste kan vi drømme om dem.

Crocus Rose: I love this one! The shape and colour is just wonderful. Some mildew has occured on it, but not so bad.
Elsker denne her. Formen på blomsten og fargen er helt fantastisk. Litt meldugg har den fått av og til, men ikke så galt.

Origin: David Austin (United Kingdom, 2000).

And here is: Jenny Duval. 'Président de Sèze' -Difficult to know since they are so similar.
Not much experiance with her yet. Plated las year. Got a bit bured from the sun since it came from a greenhouse ( Hesleberg ) But flowered early. I hope she has survived the strong winter this year.
Jeg har ikke så mye erfaring med henne enda. Plantet henne i fjor. Hun ble litt solsvidd siden jeg kjøpte denne og andre fra Hesleberg gartneri, og de var allerede godt utviklet i potte. Håper hun har overlevd den harde vinteren vi har hatt i år.

Next one out is: Findlands Hvita Ros.
This one is usually the first one to flower in my garden, in June. It was a gift from my mother. I can see that I need to move this one again. It becomes bigger than I thought.
Denne er vaneligvis den første som blomstrer i min hage i Juni. Den var en gave fra min mor. Jeg ser nå at jeg må flytte denne igjen da den blir større enn jeg først hadde trodd.
