Grand Old Lady

by Diane Davis July. 17, 2008 2037 views

I'm sure my girls remember this rose. It was on the property when we bought the place. Sadly neglected I'm ashamed to say we mowed over it for a few years. Then I decided to let it grow and see what it was. Heart stopping. The smell is incredible, the roses are about 4 inches across and loaded with petals. I think it's an old antique rose but I can't find the name.

She looks a little bashful here.

She's a real beauty. It must be an antique rose-most hybrid roses don't have that much of a smell. L ~ P
