Anne Boelyn Roses

There are lots of flowers on the Anne Boelyn bush in my garden at the moment,
so I gathered some and had a bunch of fun with them.Anne Boelyn is a David Austin (English) Rose which is said to have only a mild scent compared to most other English Roses which are much stronger in scent.
But for some reason their scent really stood out to me today,
which I totally welcomed.
I stationed the pitcher on my bedside table.
Ahhh! It's a lovely tea-rosy scent.........
From here you can also see my monogram-painted pillow which I did a while ago,
I guess for me painting the letters is much easier than stitching them,
so that was exactly what I did with a fabric paint in grey;
since I also had spare linen and white fabric and pillow inserts lying around.I hope you are having a wonderful day,
have a lovely Tuesday, my dear friends.

Your roses are so lovely. Do you/did you, do anything special to your soil prior to planting and in order to maintain your roses so well?

Another fabulous rose to add to my list of David Austins that I have gathered from you. This year I think I will actually get to plant some since our garden has been ruined in the earthquake here, good excuse to buy new ones-lol.
Adore your bed's linen, looks fabulous.
