A few holes eaten in this roses outer petals, but still bright and cheerful A bit tatty round the edges. I know the feeling 🙂

I put a version up with white flowers if anyone is able to ID it, or perhaps Trev with his PlantSnap app? It was in some wild garden seed planted early this year, havenít seen it before. Like white Campion but buds on one stem. Thanks 👌

Thanks for the clicks and comments on Winston the cat, they¬’re much appreciated and very welcomed 🐈

Something has had its lunch Dave! Still a beautifully coloured rose.

Caterpillars tend to leave holes like this, Dave.
They have no respect for a beautiful bloom.
But, on the whole, it's a lovely image. Wink

A bit like me! 😬 At least I haven't holes nibbled into me 😁 A beautiful rose though, Dave 👍
Trev 😀

Proud scars of life perhaps, reminds me a bit of that film Shirley Valentine 🙂 The rose still has a wonderful smell 👌

I find those holes here and there-- thought it was beetles--
Beautiful flowers in both images!

🌻 possibly the flower in the version is a type of Stephanosis? Am not up in plant names. It looks the kind of plant that isnít normally outdoors, but is flowering healthily here.

Dave 🙂

So beautiful and colourful, and a shame about the holes

Perhaps a type of Hollyhock

Too small for hollyhock Ju, the flowers are only about 1Ē to 1.5Ē diameter, buds are fleshy a bit like fuchsia buds. Thanks for the suggestion though 👌

Beautiful rose Dave. As to the ident a bit puzzling. A white hibiscus? The leaves are oval though? Debs
