English Roses

Our early summer weather has consisted of a mix of rain and sun. I ran outside yesterday morning ahead of another approaching rain shower and clipped a small bouquet of roses. These are called Heritage, by David Austin. 

I have four David Austin rose bushes in our garden. They are all English roses, whose full old blossoms and strong heavenly fragrance I love. They deserve much more attention than we give them, I'm afraid. But nonetheless, they grace us with their timeless beauty. 

 David Austin's English Glamis Castle (creamy white) and Heritage (pink) roses.
