I Dream of Roses

 It's been my dream to have an old English garden--a little kept, a little wild, but mostly with all kinds of ruffly  roses that appear in Henri Fantin-Latour's flower paintings. Well, this past Christmas, my order was placed to David Austin's Roses and so started my long wait for the roses to arrive (in March) and finally to bloom, which they have beautifully.  The roses above are named Strawberry Hill and the ones below are named Claire Austin and Fantin Latour, one of my must-haves.
