English Roses



Our early summer weather has consisted of a mix of rain and sun. I ran outside yesterday morning ahead of another approaching rain shower and clipped a small bouquet of roses. These are called Heritage, by David Austin. 


I have four David Austin rose bushes in our garden. They are all English roses, whose full old blossoms and strong heavenly fragrance I love. They deserve much more attention than we give them, I'm afraid. But nonetheless, they grace us with their timeless beauty. 


 David Austin's English Glamis Castle (creamy white) and Heritage (pink) roses.

  6. Lovely, lovely roses you have! My garden in Sweden is full roses right now! Especially the inneryard. The newest addition is Gertrude Jenkyll, another Austin Rose. But my favourite at the moment is splendid, beautiful Karen Blixten. A white beauty with a touch of pink inside.
    Enjoy Summer!
    Kindest regards,

  15. We love our David Austin English roses here in Texas too. I have three bushes and ordred five more for delivery next fall. They do so well and are always so beautiful.

    Now if I could only get my peony bushes to thrive as well as yours. We had no winter here so mine didn't bloom this year for the first time in three years. Praying for better winter weather this year!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely garden. It is a lovely inspiration.
