I have written a bit about the David Austin roses we have in our garden, which you can read about here and here. I wanted to share some photos and details regarding the rest of the roses we have in our garden. I did lose a few roses over the past couple of months so I will try and find replacements in the new year.
A Gardener's Dream
I added this rose to our garden two years ago. It has become one of my favourite roses.
This is a stunning yellow rose which flowers profusely year round.
I added this rose to the garden after I saw a picture of it in a gardening group I belong to. I am not much of a drinker so I didn't realise that the rose was named after an alcoholic beverage.
I simply had to add this rose to our garden after a gardening friend posted a photo of it in her garden.
This rose was planted back in 2017 by a pair of American woofers who stayed with us (along with four other roses).
This is a stunning yellow rose which is also incredibly vigorous.
A long time ago I managed to find this classic red climbing rose as a standard, which was really lucky. This was one of the roses planted by the pair of American woofers who helped me so much, not just in the garden but also with life generally. I learnt so much from them in the short time they stayed with us. They had a lot of great ideas. I really admired their passion and determination.
The assistant manager of my favourite garden centre recommended that I add this rose to our garden, which I did and I have no regrets.
This is a very low maintenance rose which flowers well in our garden.
This pink rose made a fantastic addition to our garden.
My aunt who lives across the road kindly gave us this rose after my father passed away. Unfortunately it died recently so I will try and find a replacement.
This is a beautiful red rose. The petals have a very different shape to Dublin Bay.
Mum in a Million
This is a beautiful pink rose. Here's an idea - it makes an ideal mother's day present for a mum who loves roses!
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2024!
