Everything's Coming Up Roses

English Sachet - hybrid tea, but very similar to the English roses.

Iceberg - a great landscaping rose. It blooms all the time.

Evelyn - a David Austin. My personal favorite, although it's not in full bloom, yet. It's stunningly beautiful and highly fragrant. This bush survived the most callous treatment by some landscapers a couple years ago. It has forgiven me by growing back as healthy and beautiful as it was before they dug it up in the middle of summer and threw it on the grass!

Leonardo da Vinci - usually blooms just once a season, but twenty or more blooms like this on one bush make a strong statement.

Roses are my favorite flowers. My home has a rose theme throughout, and my yard has about twenty different types of rose bushes. Since I got around to pruning them later than I should have, they are beginning to bloom just now. I can't tell you how much I enjoy these first blooms, so I thought I'd share them with you so that you can enjoy them too.
