Oh, gee, Joanna, I can almost smell that true rose scent only a Gertrude Jekyll can rose can produce. I had an aunt that grew these in abundance around her home. I loved going there in the summer just to breathe in the fragrance and color. You captured this iconic beauty beautifully! (and thanks so much for the sweet summer memory:) #11828185
