This is Mary Rose, a really prolific flowerer, at least 2 flushes per year
This is Zephirine Drouhin, a climbing rose that I planted last year to one side of my arch. It has the most amazing perfume - and I know this because I sniffed all the roses at the David Austin nursery!
Last but not least this is St Swithun, nicely perfumed and lots and lots of blooms. Are you noticing a bit of a pink theme going on? As well as pink I allow white, blue, purple and shades thereof in the back garden and this is for all plants not just my roses. I wanted to have some sense of calm and serenity but not sure I've achieved that as the variety of colour within this palette is actually vast, but I do love my little garden. My other 4 roses are not in bloom yet so there is more joy to come :)
