Planting More Roses…
Do I really need more roses in the garden? Not really, but I welcome them with a happy heart! I ordered these sweet and I must say fragrant roses from Heirloom Roses last month and they are now on their way to Fishtail Cottage. They are to arrive sometime this week – so, where to plant them is the question?French Perfume – So striking in Color and has a fruity spice fragrance to it. Creamy yellow centers shading to lipstick and near red at the petals edges – clusters of 3/5 on an upright plant with dark green foliage. Blooms continuously throughout summer. Zones 6-10 Height & Width is 4’x3’
Perfume Delight – Deep Rose Pink that produces beautiful buds that open into large double blooms with long stems for cutting. Continuous blooms Zones 5- 10 Height & Width are 3’ x 3’ Very Fragrant.
Wife of Bath – Small double cupped blooms of a beautifully rich rose/pink in abundance on a compact plant. Consistently blooms throughout summer. Height & Width 3”x4”, Very Fragrant
Heirloom – This rose has semi double blooms of deep lilac and purple on an upright plant. It will continually bloom all summer long. Zones 6-10 Height & Width are 4’x3’, Exceptionally Fragrant
Lemon Spice – This beautiful tea rose is a double bloomer which blooms repeatedly all through spring / summer. Its light to medium yellow blooms will be stunning in my garden, not to mention the fragrance it will bring to the garden.
So I will have to let you all know where these little beauties will be planted! I ordered two of each so more than likely – just throughout the garden… I love being able to walk through the garden and smell the fragrance of flowers drift by me… sighhhh, looking forward to that moment!

I'm off to work, enjoy your day..
I could almost smell each of the roses as I scrolled down. They're all beauties and will look lovely when planted.
I know just where you could plant them *sweet smile*...though you would have long walk to smell their lovely scent lol.
Thank you for the lovely eye candy and hosting again this week.
Would you like to send me some...? :)
Have a great day!!
