I live in a small cul de sac with just 9 houses on the main part of it - most of the neighbours are like me - nuts about gardening - and we have many roses between us. As I walked up the close yesterday, the rose scent billowing on the warm breeze was very strong - heady and just perfect.
This rose opens to look a bit clematis - like, I think anyway. I think it is called Altissimo - a David Austin rose.
I have been re-reading Looking Forward by Marcia Willet - it has this lovely pic on the cover......
I thought of my own garden when I read this passage in this lovely book........."The scent of roses drifted in at her open window and a thrush was singing in the orchard. These familiar joys calmed her..........."
I haven't got an orchard though - lol!
Hope your day is filled with "familiar joys". :)
