My fishing buddies claim I grow far too many "girlie" pink roses. I actually grow many roses that are not girlie pink - but since I only have very small garden areas, and I can not stand to watch colours clashing in my garden - I only grow a few yellow roses - most of them in my vegetable garden, that I turned into a cutting garden, where I grow roses and other flowers for cutting. Yes the rose obsession got a bit out of control over the years - but who says we always have to be in control and never allow ourselves to be passionate about anything?
Today I just want to show some pictures of some of my wonderful golden Roses:
The picture on top is The pilgrim. Austin Rose - here glowing in the evening sun. I am trying to make it climb, but so far it is going nowhere, but the Viticella clematis is! The Pilgrim has a sweet honey fragrance, unlike any other rose I know of - so unbelievable sweet!
Golden Celebration. Austin Rose, Best yellow rose in the world?
