I can almost smell your Abraham Darby through the computer! I'm so glad I finally gave myself one. Mine has just started blooming. Beautiful roses!


Mmmmmm...I can just imagine the scent. Some of your Roses almost look like Peonies. I'm glad your weather isn't too hot. We hit a record high of 94 today--too hot for May. I hope the weather balances out for the rest of the summer.


Just gorgeous Kathleen! Your roses are so far ahead of mine! I see you got the Winchester Cathedral - it is fabulous!


Rose season is one of our favorites, isn't it Kathleen? Mine are looking rather pitiful, but the roses bloom on, not caring what the foliage looks like!


An amazing sea of roses. Abraham Darby looks like a David Austin Rose?

Busy here too as my son just graduated-your daughter too? I cried when my son did as he is the baby and the only one I got to see. Such a big deal. Have fun at your daughters and take a hankie.


Just Googled Abraham Darby and it is indeed a David Austin rose. I'd recognize those roses anywhere I think due to the huge amount of petals. I have only one here and it is 'Falstaff'. It looks the same as Abraham but is a deep rose color.

Beautiful roses, I know you brought some inside to enjoy the fragrances as well.

Roses and Clematis - a great combination for any garden.

I'm amazed at your roses, Kathleen! You constantly amaze me with your huge variety of plant-life. :-) Have a great week.
