adore roses. My dad got me started and now my front yard is all roses. I have a yellow climber in the back yard as well as one called double delight it smells like heaven. out front I indulged myself with beautiful tea roses from England white, pale pink , pale yellow and of course my favorite of all is a mini pink rose that blooms fast and furious,I think dad called it a Cecil Brunner, I sometimes pick a few and dry them to use on victorian type dried arrangements. So there you have it. I love your rose garden and say keep going it's beautiful. How lucky you are.

And don't forget you can make rose water and rose tea, (my argument is that roses are edible--DH thinks non-edible flowers are a waste of "prime" garden real estate).

I love roses :) Like your garden! I would suggest you buy the book "A book of roses by Margeret Roberts" It's available online. Margeret Roberts is a very well known herb lady and brilliant self taught gardener. I've been to her home and gardens in North West in South Africa and she has got countless beautiful rose bushes. She's even got a rose named after her. I love her books and I've bought 7 so far.

I agree, my entire garden is edible, I only grow edible plants and flowers ofr my childrens sake. They love being able to eat the flowers, herbs, berries etc. And they both love making herbal tea, even my 4yr old :)

My Dad loved roses this is one of about 6 that he planted 60yrs ago, when in bloom he would pick one each morning and put it on the lapel of his suit to go to work, before he was cremated I put a flower from the same rose in the lapel of the suit his body was dressed in, he would have said it was a waste of a flower.
