Golden Celebration | David Austin English Rose | National Rose Month

If you love large heavy petaled yellow roses, grow Golden Celebration. Patience is key when growing this rose. It’s old rose heritage takes a few years to come into her glory in the garden, but when she does, stand back! It’s a sight to behold.  Here’s  a fresh bloom from my morning garden walk.

  2. Chris, you already live in heaven! 😉


  3. Now, that is a good-looking rose. But I am anything but patient, so I should probably admire it in the gardens of others.


  4. Reblogged this on speaknotwhispernot and commented:
    What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet;
    So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
    Retain that dear perfection which he owes 50
    Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name;
    And for that name, which is no part of thee,
    Take all myself.
    — Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene II, by William Shakespeare


  5. OK I give in, it looks like I will have to get some David Austin English Roses. One is just more delicious then the other.
