Mr Titchmarsh Is In Da House

 
Actually Alan Titchmarsh (the Rose) is in the garden revealing all.
I took these photos last week when the sun shone, there was a soft breeze  & light drops of rain sat like sparkly dew drops on his gorgeous form. ( I may write a steamy book...'37 Shades of Pink')
 
 
Mr TG & I had counted 71 buds n' blooms, their sweet perfume wafting the air as we brushed pass
 
 
That was last week....this week Mr Titchmarsh is a fallen figure. His blossoms are scattered messily everywhere, any remaining blooms are hanging heavy & tried. Yes..the British summer has returned, wind & rain have quite literally nipped Mr Titchmarsh's glory in the bud.
I'll go out in a mo' and see if I can breath life into the poor chap (sigh....)

What a gorgeous rose! I'm not sure how well it would do in my climate. Is an English summer rainy? I'm sure your book 37 Shades of Pink would be much better written than the original. I wanted to compost my copy to make sure my 17 yr old daughter didn't find it but was worried it would slow down production in the worm bins. I was worried the worms would be so busy tying each other up they wouldn't have time to make any compost. :o)

Oh arent those just gorgeous... Mr. Titchmarsh is a wonderfully steamy image.... I bit that all the different shades of pink would be even more imaginable then grey... Hahaha... Happy steamy gardening....

What a gorgeous rose - how come you've got time to stand and count all the buds - you've obviously not got enough to do.

I shall never be able to look Mr Titchmarsh face without thinking of his glory!
Beautiful roses, shame about the weather making a mess of them.
luv

Absolutely gorgeous! Oh my gosh! I just can't get over him. I have a crush on Mr. Titchmarsh. LOL Sorry to hear his presence was so fleeting. Happy gardening, Jane! :-)

Ah, a beautifully captured fleeting moment. Well done, as it was so very, very fleeting. I've never read Mr T's fiction. Never shall either! D

Wow, 71 blooms! Impressive! That is too bad they all met their end with the stormy weather. Our heat has quenched the blooms of my roses - most of the blooms have shriveled and fried.

Oh I don't know if that steamy book is such a good idea. You might only sell a couple of million copies. Not worth the effort.

You've got me interested in the rose though. One for my wish list. Hope you've still got some buds left to give you another display when it stops raining (next month)
