Sweet Blooms in the Rose Garden….

Just a few roses to share with you today.  I was working in the garden and the scent drifts all through the back of the house.  Love, love, love this early treat of blooms in April.  Enjoy…..
‘Raspberry Swirl’ by Jackson and Perkins
Entrance to the Rose Garden with Spring Blooms
‘French Lace’
This is a rescue rose from a very old local garden that was being demolished.  I think it is an old Bourbon Rose, if you can ID it, let me know.  I believe it to be a once bloomer and it is covered in buds.  VERY FRAGRANT.
It’s a joy to see all the roses come back to life and see them from the windows in the house again. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
