Here are some of my favorites; I hope I've got the names right...
I was with my daughter Emilie. Before going inside, she read the list of roses and she found some names very funny, especially the rose named after a French Country singer, Eddy Mitchell. It turns out that this rose was one of our favorites, with Summer Lodge.

Are this roses teahybrids? They are lovely! I guess you could not only see a lot of beautiful blooms but also smell wonderful fragrances!
Enjoy a nice Sunday!

I bet that was one beautiful smelling place, does everyone walk around with pollen on the end of their noses after they have sniffed the roses. They do when I go and visit David Austin's rose garden.

Lucky you Vero! At my place most of the roses haven't unfolded their leaves jet, and most of my minies are dead once more. I look forward to going shopping for new ones anyway ;)
