I love Autumn, it's not too hot, not too cold. I especially love roses in Autumn, they are superb in shape, size, form and colour, they also keep forever on the bush. With the help of a bit of rain, and the not-so-harsh sunshine, they are happy to keep producing the more extraordinary than usual flowers at this time of the year.
English Rose Abraham Darby is definitely one of my favourites in terms of flower form. Sometimes it appears in pink, but most of the time it has an apricot shade. It has very strong perfume with loads of petals.Louise Odier is a very old variety, I think it was bred in 1850 if I remember right. It just loves flowering and the scent is simply superb, and strong.Tamora, also by David Austin, is a very good flowerer, I love her flower form, she always keeps her head up, which helps one notice her more amongst others.
Now, let's have some fun with them. The pale pink ones are St. Cecilias, they are in the most gorgeous soft pink in Autumn and I just feel like eating them.
It was a pleasure to photograph these pretties, as they wore the most pleasing perfumes and were very good and easy to work with. They simply sparkled!!!!
