I'm so in Perfume Heaven!

I'm not exaggerating, just the Jude the Obscure (the yellowy peach David Austin roses) alone are enough to fill the whole room with this amazingly strong and yet absolutely lovely perfume. I'm really in Perfume Heaven inhaling all these roses' perfumes combined. Some of you mentioned time and time again you wish there was "blog-a-scent", yes, same here! Heritage ( David Austin, pink) are really photogenic, don't you think? I think our living room loves all the roses too. This photo below is of a bouquet of Pierre de Ronsard (Eden Rose) that everybody seems to love so much. They look great, not so much in the scent department though. They are gorgeous nonetheless. More of everything.Jubilee Celebrations are beautiful and a delightful bush to grow. Now looking out through the kitchen windows. Don't worry, I still have lots of Jude-s in the garden. When I'm through playing with roses, I play with alphabets, or words, for that matter. Still wish you could smell them all.................. I mean the roses. Have a cup of tea instead, have a lovely scented one like Earl Grey or Lady Grey, have a heaven-scent day!

Rosy what wonderful hints ..... I will out looking for the Jude the Obscure and Heritage David Austins, they are stunning and exactly what I was looking for as their colours look soft and delicate and would perfect in that spot I mentioned to you.

Oh my god Rosy, your roses are amazing, and the pictures lovely, and how I woul love to smell them!!!!!! And that view through your kitchen window, oh my god, plenty of roses outside, how marvellous!!
I´m writing down the names of your roses and will check in the nurseries if I found them here in Santiago. The Pierre de Ronsard one I have it, is a beauty but doesn´t smell any.
Muchos cariños

I'm so happy to see your pictures while it's snowing outside my window! My english roses had plenty of challenges last season, but your photos remind me why I keep trying with them.

Sandra said...

So stunning! I always enjoy your photos of all your roses. :) I'm looking forward to planting some David Austin roses in the spring.
Have a wonderful day.

Oh my I just cannot get enough of these roses! I am so worried about my David Ausin roses that I planted this spring. We are getting snow and down to 12 they say- I do hope they survive our winter.

Beautiful!
Rosy... I remember that you have 2 Gertrude Jekyll trained as climbers. Could you give me an update on your GJ, because I still haven't made up my mind whether to train GJ as a climber or prune it as a shrub.

Thanks in advance,
Jimmy

Your roses are absolutely breathtaking! I have a tiny garden with about 12 rose bushes and 9 of them are David Austins. I would *love* to plant more but worry about them being too crowded. Living in Canada, the growing season is fairly short ... I have roses from June to September, occasionally into October. I'm now following your beautiful blog. Thanks for your inspiration!

Hi Jimmy,

You've got good memory. Yes, my two Gertrude Jekylls are doing fine, they are climbing and flowering. I can't really say whether they are better as a bush or climber yet either, as they are still considerably young (this is their second Spring), they still don't have the same vigour as the older and fully grown yet. I have seen pictures of them being bushes, they don't look bad at all. I wanted to make mine climbers because they will add interest and height to the garden.

Oh, those are gorgeous!!! The view to your garden is just amazing! Look at all those roses out there! I love Eden. I want to buy two more different roses and I can't decide what to get!

Rebecca @ Belle Blog said...

WOW!! I wish I could smell them too. I have never seen that gorgeous creamy pale yellow before. It is so lovely. Love that last photo, the one where your garden is visible in the background. Please show more photos of your garden. It is amazing to see all those roses.
