The bushes are still small,
but they are beginning to bloom...

I planted a pair of

on the back entrance of the gazebo...

So pretty. What a great gift! My David Austin Eden bush is blooming now and I love it...but I think I love my David Austin Wildeve more. That Wildeve is my favorite rose ever!

So much beauty! You know Bella I never made it to our local Rose Garden as I planned too. But I'm glad I can always visit your blog and see gorgeous roses here. Too bad I cannot smell their sweet fragrance.

Betty Stapleton said...

what beautiful roses you have. My roses had bloomed then a big wind storm one night wiped all the petals off, and they are now blooming again though. Your roses are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing...

You would love the Rose test gardens in Portland Oregon as well as the Heirloom Roses gardens.

I remember your Valentine box of roses well Bella. It is a pleasure to now see photos of many of the blooms from your garden.
We have a huge rose society in our county, do you belong to one?

Bella, This was like food for my soul! I just LOVE David Austin Roses! I have to be careful of the ones I choose and baby them. Yours are a dream! I was just working on a post on gardening and mentioned loving visiting others gardens in bloom now while mine is waning! This post is completely Delightsome! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy

Hi Bella~

Your DA's are sooooooo beautiful! You are going to be in absolute HEAVEN when they become 4 years of age. That's when they'll hit their remarkable stride, believe me... I have Wedgewood rose and James Galway, amongst others. James Galway is one of my faves by far. Very hardy and abundant!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me, you are such a sweetheart!

Beth said...

Hi Bella, Your roses are so beautiful. What a fabulous Valentine!!!

Haworth said...

AH! so there are the "Valentine" roses... I wondered when I saw all the other roses in your previous posts if those were the gift roses you'd received. These are just beautiful. What a wonderful addition to your garden, and how lovely that they all "took" to the soil and came up so beautifully. Best of luck with them through the years, Bella.
