Absolutely No picture magic. Instead pictures do little justice to the beautiful and healthy roses, of which i was a witness myself in person a couple of days back...To see such healthy roses at this time of year is itself amazing. Diligently done Rafique Bhai.
Add to that was load of seedlings which were enviably healthy :p. Thanks Rafique Bhai for a wonderful meeting and ofcourse for the seedlings!

Lahore's climate, i have found to be more timid as compared to ours up here in North. I doubt Lahore will bear frost this season, as winter is peaking here with us with temperatures dropping below zero. Grass is white in the morning. Lahore is definitely a zone higher.

Specially grateful to both of you.
