A friend and I spent the morning picking roses and having coffee under the trees at Chart Farm during the week. I was surprised that there were any roses to pick after the heat wave we have had. The colours in the rose gardens were so enticing but I tried to stick with pinks.

The buds opened really quickly and the colours are glorious. I put them in the passageway between my sewing room and the kitchen so I could stop and smell the roses every time I went past. 

The best scent is from the cream rose with the deep pink-tipped petals.


  1. Really lovely, Lyn. I go fo scented roses every time. I do like the look of the slightly apricotty one though.

    1. Hi Jillian. Funny you should choose that one. Its the only other one with a scent and its a softer scent too.
