My Rose Garden


This year has been a wonderful year for roses here in east central Illinois. Here is a picture of one of my garden favorites; an English rose by the name of "Crown Princess Margurite". I have a passion for the old world roses and this is but one of my many specimens bred by David Austin. It is planted by our east door and it's high, arching habit is perfect for framing the doorway....except for those thorns!

Hiya Angie! Wow, thanks for checking in. I love roses as you may be able to tell....and like you, I have a husband who does not like it when I go down the gardening isles! I get all my roses from a grower over seas though and I use their mail order catalog. I'll hop over to your blog and check it out.

((Hugs))
