A Rose By Any Other Name...

Been very busy since our return to the States from our cruise and spending lots of time in the garden.  I've managed to plant all but four of the 41 pots placed in our gardens.  I got a late start because of the vacation, but I'm not complaining.


Today I cut these from the garden:


From left to right meet Double Delight, Tahitian Sunset, Mary Rose (a David Austin rose), and JFK.  All are wonderfully fragrant.

I've wondered how you were doing and how your trip went. I'm sure you had much to do when you got home.

The flowers are lovely. I love when the roses first come on. I also have JFK. It does have a very fragrant smell.

You obviously have some beautiful roses in your garden. Three of these are in our garden as well.
