Bitten by the Rose "bug" Bud Yet Aagain
I still have one though, climbing up the deck front railing, to greet us with her smile and perfume.
Zephirine Drouhin .. she is an old rose from the 1800's.
A beauty in form and scent .. a Bourbon .. that has wrapped me around her almost thorn less canes !
I have gotten greedy about her .. so yesterday during the height of winter BLAHS I visited a wonderful mail order company called Hortico and ordered "her"
This bottom picture is not mine either .. but I hope to capture some wonderful ones from this new rose .. another creamy white one .. I have a thing about the white ones still.
I did research her last year and almost got her then .. Ilse Krohn Superior
Strong , beautiful, and most important when I choose roses ? VERY fragrant !
I have high hopes for her and that she and Zephirine will look wonderful on opposite ends of a new arbour in a newly renovated sunspot in my garden.
What better way to spend gray days in winter than to dream of roses and what might be ?
I have never ordered from them before but they are right here in Ontario so I have high hopes they have good healthy stock and I can't wait to see these beauties.
So that makes three roses I could not resist .. on order .. something to look forward to when Spring actually makes her appearance ?
