Wherwell Chocolate Box Thatched Cottage & Roses
I am not sure if this is a Thatched Cottage with Roses or Roses with a Thatched Cottage ?


This is the "extension" at the far right ...


This is the view opposite and left a bit - opposite over the bridge takes you to a FAB Gate Lodge (great Architecture) and another bridge over the river where Swans nest and lots of Finches are.


The Water Pump outside - still works !

Wherwell (pronounced whirrull) in Hampshire, is a few miles north of Winchester and a small village with great Countryside walks; Fab Cottages and PUB for photos of Ducks & Swans on the river through the Common (with a wooden walkway over); Landscapes to die for; the Old Manor too with horses in fields; Pheasants; Deer & Rabbits... and a fab Pub with top class food (The White Lion). Its a great day out at not even parking cost. If anyone wants to meet there I am happy to take you on a walkabout. Some hills involved:) most of the homes are Thatched Cottages.

This Rose


Comes from this bud


THIS is one of my all time favourites


and this one


This Peach Peace is maybe best from sideview? Just look at the size of this bloom !!!


or not ?


and a Pink one ...


Sorry for quality - but these were taken when we were on motorbikes off to Marlborough and the Cottage was in shade :( One day I must go back when the suns at the front ...

Perhaps Lyn aka Floribunda can name these ? Lyn I hope you enjoy ? If you ever come to the UK it must be end of May and early June and I can take you to see some of the MOST AWESOME Rose collections

Well I'm not Lyn but I do enjoy taking flower images and that is a nice series.:)

This one looks very much like this one I took which is a climbing rose called Handel.

Hi Chevvy - Thank you for drawing my attention to this set. It is lovely, and those thatched cottages are to die for! :)
They make me feel like jumping on a plane tomorrow and heading your way!
Alas - this will not happen - not just yet anyway!:(
ID for roses from a photograph is very difficult - hard to judge the size of the bloom, if it is a climber or not etc. Different countries can have different names too - which just adds to the confusion!
I am not going to stick my head out and try to ID - I will just enjoy them!

Absolutely stunning set of images. I am not a rose person myself but the cottage and stream shots were very appealing. It would be nice to see how it looks with the olde worldy treatment, why not try sepia on old paper? Clone out those road markings though.

Well done!

Thanks for this set!
Love the thatched 'arch' to the extension, did you get some closer pictures?

I'd buy the box just for the picture and throw the chocolates out! (Or give them to Floribunda who I know is a chocoholic!)

Re: Wherwell Chocolate Box Thatched Cottage & Roses
Floribunda, David, Ulfric and Pandora, Thank you all for your kind comments! David I shall return this June and catch the Cottages in Sunlight (as opposed to shade :)
Ulfric I shall take a wide and a t/photo and get some close ups (of the Pheasants [thatched]) on the roof of the main cottage and extension !
I shall add these here for you all !
