Sir Thomas Lipton
Gratuitous Garden Pic
For some reason the FTP started working again today. I have only been doing software for 20 years so I have no idea what is going on but either I fixed something or they did.
Anyhow here is a picture of the king of my garden Sir Thomas Lipton.
The Lipton is a Rugosa which are known for being very hardy. After our success with this one I bought 4 or 5 more different Rugosas the next year, all of which died. This one however is eight feet high by eight feet wide. It is a repeat bloomer and is fragrant.
We took some cuttings the year before last and had good results but all the babies save one were deer food. If we ever get a greenhouse we will probably take more since we obviously have lots of raw material to work from.
On second thought it might be ten feet wide. Somewhere in there is a bird's nest too.
