  1. Hello Katherine, I do have roses here in VA but they are in sad shape. As soon as it is time, I plan on pruning them back heavily in hopes they will look better next year. I think they are similar to knock-out roses but called grandiflora (?).

    I realized I wasn’t subscribed with my duhpaynes address so I am now following along again! 🙂

  2. The Queen of Sweden is my favorite David Austin Rose… and you are right, it looks like it is bred between peonies and ranunculus – my other two favorite flowers! It smells so sweet and I love the little rippled edges! I have two bushes right now but they are in between blooms… getting ready for bloom round #2!

  3. I love roses. Especially PINK ones! But as much as I garden, I am not particularly good with roses. I do keep trying one once in a while, especially a sweetly scented one.

  4. The Queen of Sweden Rose is Stunning! I just Love it. I love how tight it is with alot of Petals. The color Pink is Beautiful. I will definitely consider growing these beautiful roses. Thank You For Sharing !!… . Are you familiar with a tiny l tea rose that climbs. We had one years ago at our other House. It was there when we purchased the House. We moved to another House about 12 yrs ago and I have been looking all over since and I just cannot find it any where! Thank You God Bless & Hugs Cathy

  5. I LOVE roses, but they don’t love me enough to survive my care! My Gram used to say that I could kill a silk plant, sadly it is true. In doors or out doors all plants pretty much suffer the same fate at my hands. The lucky ones survive in spite of me, not because of me. However – you are tempting me to give it another try with this gorgeous Queen of Sweden rose. Just maybe, this time success will be within my touch. Thank-you!

  6. Beautiful roses and I am not very good at growing flowers or roses either in all honesty. But I wish you luck this time out! Happy Wednesday now my sweet friend!! xoxo <3
