Hybrid Tea Rose
Can you believe these are the same roses in a different light?
New flowerbed built with castle stones
This bed was made possible by Gerard Davidson, Jan Green and Janet Ward Black. The blue planter was underwritten by Noel K-S.

Against the rubber tongues of cows and the hoeing hands of men
Thistles spike the summer air
And crackle open under a blue-black pressure.
Every one a revengeful burst
Of resurrection, a grasped fistful
Of splintered weapons and Icelandic frost thrust up
From the underground stain of a decayed Viking.
They are like pale hair and the gutturals of dialects.
Every one manages a plume of blood.
Then they grow grey like men.
Mown down, it is a feud. Their sons appear
Stiff with weapons, fighting back over the same ground.
- Ted Hughes
