coming up roses

Photo heavy today ~ because whatever I say isn’t going to be much compared to the natural beauty of these Pierre de Ronsard climbing roses we have growing on our back verandah.  I often catch myself standing under them, staring up, smiling!

When I first started blogging, {I think it was my second post}, I had recently planted this area.  You can visit that post HERE to compare the photos.

Then last year I was gathering them by the basket full, you can see HERE.

I adore the fullness and lusciousness of them!

This next photo, I called my husband to come over and stand there… and just look up.  He knew what I meant.

We get to enjoy these beauties from now through to May next year.  And in a few years, we’ll have two more fully grown versions of these in the front yard, that we planted last week.  I can’t wait!

  1. OH Natasha!
    They are heavenly, truly Heaven sent! As I went through I truly felt I could almost catch their scent!!! Oh I do hope they have a scent also. However even if they had no scent theses roses are wonderful. Thank You to your Husband for capturing the beautiful "star" within the roses!

    I am going to hope my nursery says we can grow these here!

    Thank You!!!

    Hugs, Mary

  7. They are my favourite rose. I planted 3 last year and I'm patiently waiting for them to grow up my trellis. They are such a pretty rose, very feminine.
