Some Christmas Pictures

Post by Balinbear on 27th December 2013, 08:35

Despite the heat and the dry some of our roses are doing alright. Not as good as usual for this time of year but not too bad. Sorry about the quality of the photos.

And yours truly showing the style that did not get him selected to bowl for Australia (or anywhere else for that matter). Great afternoon in the horse paddock, our kids, the neighbour's grand kids, the dogs (no horse as he was in the other paddock).

I had a strike rate of 1 in 10 balls which is pretty good. That's one ball on the pitch in every ten!!! Some were this wide
 This big! 
The ROR will probably last forever unless they can find the original identification or I guess until someone registers the name.

I meant registering it like you actually bred the plant though I am not sure if you can register a foundling. It is a different situation to an OP plant.

The four legged fieldsmen are Jack the brown one who just turned 13 and is deaf as a doorknob but loves to chase a ball and in fact featured in two dismissals by catching the ball, Ruby is the "red" one and was down there to make sure the dogs from across the road did not join in the game and Zephyr the black and white is their son and whose sole purpose in life is to beat Jack to the ball and to generally annoy his father. Just like ours who ran me out when I was on my way to a century (actually it was a first ball run out but I did have the intention of making a big score).

Fabulous pix, but equally fabulous captions. So amusing. Yeah, love the four-legged team members.

What's ROR (rose off register?).

Love those arches. What a tranquil spot to sit and ponder. Someone's been busy mowing that lawn to set everything off beautifully. Nothing like an expanse of green to set off roses, or any plants, I think.
And that cricket game looks like great fun. Better than the MCG. The dogs certainly think so by the look of it! Bet they slept well! And you too Gary.

Thanks folks. Yes a mown lawn really sets the gardens off.

ROR stands for "Renamed Old Rose" and is placed after the name given to the plant which is usually the name of the garden owner or the location it was found or in the case of found cemetery roses the name of the persons grave on which it was found.

Poor old Jack was a bit stiff on Christmas night and spent yesterday asleep.

Although I have better than average knowledge of roses it is remarkable how much I have picked up from this forum. Today I learnt what ROR meant and how it is used. Thank you Balinbear.

"Unidentified found roses are usually given study names in double inverted commas; in the photo galleries and Rose Index on this website, they are denoted by ROR (renamed old rose) after the study name."

Such a happy family picture, can't be a proper family Christmas without the dog(s)! Your garden is just beautiful, I love the arches.
I didn't know what ROR meant either, thanks for that piece of information.

Absolutely. Stunning. Totally.

I could happily live in your driveway, even.

You are a sorcerer with climbers. Do you have a favourite?

Sorry, I can't even begin to comprehend all that variety - like presenting trigonometry to someone who's still working on long division.

This is a private botanical garden.

Our garden is a labour of love. It takes up about 2 acres (this includes the house carport etc) but as we are getting it all sorted out we are hoping the work load reduces a bit. We grow a lot of our own perennials etc so that takes a bit of time and we are opening the garden as part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme in May 2015 so we are pretty busy at present with some major work going on.
