This one smells so lovely. I just hope today's rain hasn't ruined her. God bless our wonderful Queen 👑I hope you all enjoyed a long bank holiday and any street parties you might have had. As for me, I was singing yesterday and really enjoyed it ♥️♥️

That’s beautiful Chris. And they are so fragrant. I bought one 20 years ago and it was my first rose for my new house. Looks like the Jubilee was spectacular. They showed a lot of it here on the news. 🙂

@crabby58 @pelly Thank you. I love all my roses. For some strange reason the Nostalgia rose hasn't got even one bud on it 😳I only bought it last year. A poor performer, unlike all the others I have 💕💕

@cheyenne1barnett It's young children. Ages about from 8 to 13. I'm rewriting my first novel, but I'm slow with it, as I haven't done any writing for a few months! Which isn't good really. I really need to get back to it and get it done, otherwise I won't be able to chase a deal. I need a literary agent first. Nice of you to ask but I bet you didn't expect all this! 😁

Oh dear, my first bloom of this rose and it's looking tatty 😓I wonder what's happened. I check my roses for greenfly and treat accordingly. Something's happened to it, who knows what 🤔♥️♥️

@Annettenoosa It's the first bloom, or will be from this rose. I was just saying to Debs, that I hope it'll be ok, as it looks a little damaged by something. Some rotten bug maybe 🤔💛♥️

I am sure it will produce more flowers as your Summer progresses. England is where roses grow to perfection. They grow well here in the southern States too. Not for me though here on the coast, in the subtropics. I have a few but they do struggle. Look forward to seeing your Double Delight covered in blooms.

@Annettenoosa That would be nice but I think it'll be just one, or two blooms at the most from it. My Freddie Mercury rose just keeps producing amazing roses. I've got two out now they're fading just a little but, for a rose that was only planted mid April, he's doing really well. 🧡🧡

This should be my Double Delight, and thank goodness for the one bud. It's got floppy looking foliage which is odd. All my other Roses, even the one that isn't growing, has perky foliage. Well sort of. Looking forward to seeing this one bloom ♥️♥️
