I love roses!

Gertrude Jekyll Climbing

I just purchased and planted this lovely Old English rose from www.davidaustinroses.com and can't wait to see it grow.  It's a highly fragrant rose that has a nice rich pink color.  I am on a mission to make my cottage more cottagey!

I planted it on the south side of our cottage where I know it will get plenty of sun.  I purchased a 6 foot trellis to support it, and also bought a cute little Victorian bird house to keep it company.
