Rosa Meg Merrilees 18/06/2014

At the far end of the field at the cottage, behind the young Horse Chestnut tree, our lovely old collie Meg is buried. A couple of years ago and after a long search, we found this rose to mark her grave. Appropriately a “dog rose” Rosa Meg Merrilees, which always flowers quite early in the season and is now in full bloom, providing an excellent reminder of our dear old dog. Well worth the long drive to the Larch Cottage Nurseries just south of Penrith in the Lake District to find this rare rose.
