Talking to two Karens

Today I had long talks on the phones with two Karens.  One an old, and dearly beloved friend, and the other an enjoyable new client.  But I probably haven’t been on the phone for so long since I was a teenager.  And that was a long time ago!

Here’s some pretty roses from today:

Pat Austin–fragrance smells like apple juice.  Terrible cut flower.  So pretty on the bush that I have two of them in my yard.

Mr. Lincoln.  A tall, classic hybrid tea rose with a good rose fragrance.   This rose is at eye-level for me.

A particularly luscious bloom on The Prince.  He is not only tinged with purple, but also has a violet topnote in his fragrance.

Ah, Gertrude Jekyll.  This rose has a strong fragrance that is sweeter than most roses.  I love the fragrance on almost all my roses, but this one is in a class by itself.


About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.

    I really enjoy hearing about your garden and seeing the photos of your beautiful roses! I have a blackish-brownish thumb, but I hope one day if I ever own my own bit o’land that I will be able to have a garden and turn it at least greenish-brownish :)
