Roses and Hibiscus

No rain yet an overcast day ideal for some pictures.
Hibiscus, petals look like crumpled paper no surprise they only last a day

I can see why the Rose is the national flower of England such delicate shades

My soil is heavy clay in the garden, glad that roses such as this will grow well in it, probably my favourite for its subtle variation of colour 

We have a large patch of lawn on a green opposite our bungalow myself and a neighbour have planted some bulbs to liven it up, these Iris do add a splash of colour now the spring bulbs have finished
