Such beautiful blooms. Inspiring!
Very lovely! I love roses! My WW photo is of a wild rose that I found. 🙂
Came over from Wordless Wednesday and thought Beautiful!!! Just had to say it!
I really like the water drops on the blossoms in your first two pictures.
Hi Chris. Oh I love that miniature rose. What wonderful shades of oink in it.
Great shot of Gemini! Acquiring that Franics Meilland must be very exciting, I am looking forward to pictures of it in bloom in your garden.
Lovely Gemini. Can I ask you how is your Winchester Cathedral? My ones are really crap.
Having just planted it a few months ago, I really can’t report much other than some nice foliage. Will post as it progresses
