  2. Oh stunning .
    Gosh I am so homesick for my rose garden (now rented house) . I have some of these same roses.
    I had Peace, Pierre de Ronsard (2 x climbers) and Double delight. I have a few in large pots only.

    1. My Pierre de Ronsard is a climber, over an arch you have to walk through to get to the front door. The two double delight standards I have are ones I had to dig up and move when we built on, so glad I saved them :) I hope it's not too long before you have your own rose garden again.

    1. I love HW too, It's always the first one to come on show. Limelight(a yellow) is too, but Summer picked the flower petals off before I got to it with the camera. There'll be more :)

    1. I have a pretty good memory when I comes to flower names, sometimes....I'm not really sure, about 30 I think, maybe a bit more. I will have to walk around and do a stocktake!
