Spring, Spring...

I love all of the four seasons,
but when Spring comes it means not long after, summer blooms return to...

~ my roses ~

~ Therese Bugnet ~

~ John Cabot / Explorer Series ~

~ This rose was labeled as -
Blanc Double De Coubert,
but, I believe it is not ~

~ The Scotch Rose / Double Blush Burnet ~
Thank you Connie of Hartwood Roses for your wonderful help in identifying this heirloom rose!

I hope to catch bloom images of my Charles De Mills and Apothecary Rose this summer.
All of these roses are fairly easy to maintain and burst with an abundance of delicious aromas one expects from the beautiful rose.

...Coming up...Gardens Keep Iris...

~ Wishing everyone a beautiful day! ~
