Jane’s bouquet included Generous Gardener, Teasing Georgia and Crown Princess Margarita.  Lucy had  Rugusa's, Versuvius, rambling rector, and more. James and Helen Gray bought Summer sweetheart, Rose Gaujard, Twice in a Blue Moon, Hot chocolate, Peacekeeper, Beatrix potter, and Rural England.

From Cilla’s garden came Pacific dream, Kimono, Pierre de Ronsard, and Burgandy ice. Joy’s selection was L' aimant, Desdemona, and Jardin d Granville.  Helen had blooms of J de G, Papa Mielland, Gruss van Archan.  Martin’s four lovely roses came from his new garden, and he is looking for identification, inspiration and new ideas?
