Just a quick "Hello"

Hello all. I want to introduce myself. Im Mirenda, a long time lurker who needs a place to chat about my garden. My friends and family's eyes are beginning to glaze over when I begin talking about my gardening activities. Why can't they understand how excited I get when I snag a long lusted after Austin at a clearance sale?

Im here hoping to find folks who will delight in the fact that i bought a standard today for �5.00. I'm mad about roses, gardening and (recently) composting. I moved from Bloomington, il to Ireland 7 years ago. I had a beginners garden in Bloomington (I happily planted everything I could find on clearance at Lowes). I've grown as a gardener in Ireland.

Most of my roses are in large pots or 1/2 whiskey barrels. I'm amending the soil in my boggy garden. After four years of waiting I may get my roses on the ground next year. I will get some OGRs once I getting soil sorted out.

My roses:
