Thanks you #jaynehynesburton We were given this when we both turned 50 and also celebrating being together for 25 years a few years ago. I'm not actually a rose person because I always believed they were more trouble than they were worth but this David Austin one our friends gave us has proved me wrong! A total convert now and wanting to find space for more!
@rosiebug , when we moved int o our house, I dug up all the roses except one rambling rose and gave them away because I believed they were just hosts for aphid infestation and full of thorns and no scent. This one has proved so easy to look after and smells beautiful!
