Wish you could smell these old fashioned Roses-very intense. They don't last as long as modern hybrids ,but I would pick them every time! This one is called Reine des Violettes ,even the name is romantic. I don't get flowers bought for me by my husband anymore,but I do get Rose bushes for anniversaries ,so I get Roses every year. This spray rose is called Mimi Eden-dreadful name but a pretty Rose.
This strong wind is playing havoc with the garden. I hope it will drop for the garden open on Monday?? Hope to see you, come and say `Hello`
