January flowers

 A Sunday catalogue of flowers in the front garden on a grey January day: 
This rose is a true survivor having been transplanted at least once at Copse Hill and regularly drowned under a sea of bindweed there. Now it and its sibling seem to be thriving in the north-east bed.

  
A delicate Christmas rose, bought from a garden stall in Norfolk.

  
A perfectly white Christmas (or is it a Lenten?) rose, which seems to be thriving despite having been transplanted in the autumn.

  
More Lenten roses, this time bought as seedlings from Copse Hill, and which seem to flower throughout the year.

  
Me lurking behind the last of the Christmas roses, this time an almost black one in the north-west bed.

  
Finally a kaffir lily struggling on despite the cold in the north-east bed.
