A Rosy Outlook

Thanks to everyone who's sent along their best wishes - for you, the perfect thank you, roses!

English climber 'The Impressionist' series of bloom

Half open

Fully and fragrantly open

'Celsiana', a Damask that dates from around 1752 or earlier

'Rosa mundi' or 'Rosa gallica versicolour', a Gallica known since the 16th century, a wild and fragrant sport of 'Rosa gallica officinallis' or 'The Apothecary Rose', for its medicinal properties. Said to be named after one of King Henry's mistresses, Fair Rosamund

'Mundi' can eat fences and young pups, given a chance. Sybil eyes it warily
