Summer Roses






As romantic as the idea was at the time, I was nevertheless wrong about the name of these cream roses that I featured recently in another post.









Earlier to bloom than the others, this Lichfield Angel Austin rose is quite different from the Bride's Dream rose, which I called it, and now think isn't an Austin rose at all! Proof positive of what I have been telling you for years! . . .  I am no gardener. . .









Both of these roses are new to our rose beds and were only planted late last summer, so we are only just getting to know them. The Lichfield Angel, as you can see, is a creamy white. While the Bride's Dream, shown further along in this post, is a dreamy pale pink color.





The Bride's Dream rosebuds had already been exposed to very hot temperatures on the south side of the house, so you are seeing them in their gardeny imperfection, but I realized my mistake the minute I saw them in bloom this morning.











A gorgeous pale pink. And I suddenly feel like I have to find and plant tons more! All of the roses seem to have spent themselves very fast this year.

Ahhh me! If only the bouquets would last as long as the photographs do!
(See more of my new teacup here.)
So nice that you stopped by for a look!

They are both beautiful, but the creamy white is my favorite. White Iceburg is grown here alot, but it is almost too white, I like yours better.

Well I tried leaving a comment on my computer and it wouldn't work, so I will try my phone. Those roses are so beautiful! My favorite is the pinker one. Tomorrow I am going to St. Paul, OR's Heirloom Rose Garden for more "rose fix". I do love roses! Charming post! Kay

I don't think it matters what they are named. They are all beautiful and you are a gardener.

These are just breathtaking. So so pretty and your photos are lovely.
Most of my roses bloomed early and now are between blooming sessions.

Your roses are lovely, but I am most fascinated with your lovely linens. Where do you find all of the exquisite pieces you feature? Where do you store them?

Jacqueline, both roses are beautiful and we take photos of them so we can relive their beauty. Too bad we can't implant the scent into the photos.
