Pink pink beauties

The most translucent, pinkest of roses are no doubt extremely breathtaking. Recently my English Roses "Heritage" have been producing a great number of blooms with the softest pinkest hue and the most pleasing globular old rose shape. They obviously love the winter chill.We've had ice on our car and frost on plants, I thought the roses would be affected, but surprsingly they didn't seem to be fazed by all that, some have red dots on the blooms due to the cold, but apart from that, they are doing quite well.

Heritage and Pierre de Ronsard English Roses Ambridge Rose and Tamora have been productive too. Enjoy the rest of your week and my love to you all, chirp chirp, which means xoxoxo!

I'm not normally what I'd consider a "pink" person, but that first rose has the prettiest hue of pink I think I've ever laid eyes on!

OH OH OH! Roses in winter! Glorious! Glorious! Those are some of your prettiest yet.

Your garden party is wonderful, too. And what a great thought to have a party for your not-so-wee ones. Truly a memory they'll cherish forever!

Hi Rosy,

Thanks for the kind words on the sampler - I just love that pattern, and yes, I think the designer did a wonderful job with the crown!

Have a wonderful weekend.
