I love Roses. They adorn my walls in frames, there's dozens of them in the garden, I wear Rose scented moisturiser and Lip Balm, I would call a Daughter Rose. There's nothing I don't like about then. My very favourite Roses are those by David Austen.
Williams and Catherine
They have a remarkable fragrance, that of old roses. It lingers in air and makes sitting in the garden a joyous experience. The best bit is they repeat flower so you get their beauty for longer. I keep a list of which ones I want to collect and I always swoon over their catalogue.
Sir John Betjeman
