    >Aw……. be still my heart! I love, love, love the micro mini roses (I grow them indoors because of my harsh winters) Tiddly Winks is a darling name. They're both just gorgeous.


  10. >How lovely your roses still are. I am so jealous yours are still blooming and mine are turning yellow now and losing their leaves. How tiny the Fairy roses are but they just bloom their hearts out.

    >Chris thanks for visiting my garden blog for garden blooms. It's good to find a fellow believer interested in gardening. I will follow your posts. I have had many roses in my journey. Now I have Rosa 'Flower Carpet Red'. Have grown fairy in the past, super plant. Also have had "Just Joey", my wife loved the fragrance. Not a real rose expert I must say. Nice photos..
