Hi Taddy and Ian and all,
Those two pics definitly are something completely different :)
Taddy, I wonder what your rose is. It is a beauty anyway. . .

Your rose is very nice and I wouldn't mind one myself but I think you ought to have a quiet word with your supplier..........;)

yes, both photos are nice. The flower of taddy's rose reminds me somewhat of 'Cupid'.
Here is a photo of SdM (not the climber, this one is not flowering at the moment)
I took last weekend.

I'll have to stop doing that, in moving branches of Wedding Day to take the pic I was attacked by thorns and nearly fell off the ladder. The things you have to do keep the threads going......!!

dont fall off, for heavens sake! (I think, this is the difficulty with having them beauties all above your head. . . ;) )

The flower, although not Souvenir de la Malmaison, is nice but the plant is terrible!!!!! the kind I hate: definitly a lot of Tea in it, with huge stems/poles growing strongly like a tree, with large thorns.
In a few words a thorny rose tree!!
And I have two of them one supposed to be Souvenir de la Malmaison and the other I don't even remember what.......
If Mohammed will not go to the mountain, the mountain must come to Mohammed ....... prune them just a little lower!
For your sake

I've just seen your photo of Souvenir of Dr Jamain-wow! my heart did a flip! Another addition to my wish list!!

Souvenir du Dr Jamain is a stunning rose, very fragrant and repeat flowering, we have a lovely one growing up the side of our offices here. If people ask for a red, climbing, scented rose that is generally the direction we send them but it must be kept out of hard sunlight or the blooms will scorch on the plant.
