In Bed With Pat

This beautiful Pat Austin rose is planted in a raised bed in Laguna which works out perfectly due to her heavy blooms that have a tendency to droop due to the delicate stems. The raised bed makes viewing them and photographing them much easier.

I will do another post on all the plants that don't work out well in raised beds, mainly because they soar over your head and only low-flying birds can appreciate them! I have a bunch of those too!

I have a Pat Austen also, I love it!! I'm always trying to get under it to get a good photo, maybe I'll be making some raised bed!

Pat Austin certainly is beautiful, I have her too, and the colour is wonderful, especially when you get late blooms against autumn foliage.
