Day 17 – National Rose Month

Golden Celebration – David Austin English Roses

I believe this is truly one of the most magnificent roses in my garden. It’s form, shape, color and fragrance work together to create quite an exquisite rose.  It took this rose 3 years to come into its own, but now there is not stopping it!

    I have always admired this rose in pictures. For some reason, the color, the form, the promise of scent – it speaks to me. I don’t know why I don’t have this rose in my garden. I need to put this one at the top of my list.

    I can smell it from here.


  3. I have this one, too, and totally agree! And it can be grown as a climber if you choose!
