David Austen Roses are the best

Oh bless it!  I had been watching this rosebud, the last in my garden this year, and wondered whether it would survive not only the freezing winds and the frost but the cement dust from the builders next door!?

  Yesterday I noticed it was trying to open up and I decided it had suffered enough and I picked it and brought it into the warm!

Well, it just couldn't go without a photograph could it!  I am sure it will thank me for remembering it with a picture!

It is a David Austen Rose that my Dad bought me several years ago and I love it - I don't think you can beat David Austen Roses!
