Roses are a absolutely loving our cool May weather, especially my David Austin English roses. Each rose a decadent color with such an intense rose fragrance that one can sink their noses into each flower – just as my Dad was doing when I took these photos 😀🌹.
This year has to be the best showing of my English roses in over a decade, I think it must be the mild weather we have been having. Perfect temperatures in the 60s and 70s, loads of sunshine, with a cool breeze – can our weather be any more perfect? Gosh I love Northern California in May. Here is a look at my David Austin English roses that have been showing off their beauty in my May garden this year.

Thanks Natachia! I;’ll have to remind Rani to remind me to make a bouquet for you! I thought I did, but I recall now that I was remise. 🌹💐
Well, this does happen to be one of the best places in the world for roses; even better that Portland, the so called ‘Rose City’.
I totally agree!!! We do live in the best place to grow roses even better than Portland!
Enjoyed looking at the photos of roses. We also have roses blossomed in my back yard garden but not that many what you have. Kalpana, you have a magic touch probably inherited from your mother ( as the saying goes back in India).
Thank you Del, happy you enjoyed my flowers. Yes, I do get my gardening passion from my Mom though she rarely grew flowers and prefered to grow vegetables instead.
Absolutely gorgeous!! This cool weather down south CA is helping my very small Rose garden! Your photos are heavenly! 💕
