Marvelous May. Fragrant Roses in Bloom🌹

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.

  1. Wow! These photos are absolutely Breathtaking … Love to see our Jagan Athimber enjoying the Fragrant Roses …. My dad had a Green Thumb and in his retirement years , he cultivated a Rose Terrace Garden that had Roses of every Color and every Texture except A BLUE ROSE … your fragrant post and your dad’s photo brought back memories of our Delhi Stay in Gulmohar Park , New Delhi …

    Waking up and smelling the Roses ….

  2. 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).
