Hello Gorgeous

Every Spring around mid May,
I say the same thing....

"Hello Gorgeous"

 the English roses bloom and I remember why I love them so much


 floppy, layered and beautifully scented like sweet tea


 I cram them into every container I can find

let them wilt and droop and drop petals




 so romantic and well worth the wait


plant a little romance in your garden

  1. Mine are just starting, but I have some Falstaff in the house right now. Love them! David Austin has definitely hybridized some beautiful roses!

  4. Holy gorgeous, indeed! They are lovely and exactly what I want. Besides English, have you shared the type of roses they are before...or would I just google "English roses?" I'm new to gardening, so I apologize if I seem a little clueless. I'll click that little "flowers" button to see.

    1. They are David Austin English roses which you can find now a many nurseries! Or you can order them on line but they usually only ship them around the first part of every year when they are bare root and dormant. I would shop around

      Thanks so much, Kelley

  6. Just glorious. I may have to give them a try. Although I don't think they love the climate in SW Florida, they are well worth a try...and they are the closest I will ever get to a peony here.
    Best...Victoria

  7. Incredible! We're preparing to landscape our back yard and I want some roses to pick for bouquets. These looks perfect, but I'll have to see if we can grow them. I'm a ways south of you. BTW, LOVED your spread in Country Living this month!
