Beauty Is A Rose

This month has seen some beautiful roses in our garden.  Winchester Cathedral is a David Austin rose which we planted a few weeks ago.  It has a lovely old rose scent ~ an essential for any rose as far as I'm concerned.  I have no interest in buying roses without scent as the first thing I want to do when I see a rose is stick my nose in them!T

The buds are tinged pink at the edges, but the flowers are pure white.

I have cut a couple and taken them indoors so that I can admire them when I'm not in the garden.

Oh how pretty.
I do love roses, I agree whenever I see roses I always stick my nose in them! *giggle*

Hi Marie! It has been some time since I visited. It looks like your new garden is blooming prettily.

Isn't it disappointing when you go to smell a rose and there is no scent? Your roses are very pretty.
