Our trip to England was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was planned with one thing in mind: David Austin English roses.
My dream was to visit David Austin's Shropshire Rose Garden when it was in full bloom. I'll tell you now that I cried.
You see, my favorite roses are by David Austin.
It might sound funny to use the word "by" but it is true. David Austin and his son design roses, propagate them and nurture them into the masterpieces that you will see here.
I have so many moments and images I want to share from my visit that I have decided to sprinkle them throughout the series (rather than have an entire week dedicated to roses). I promise they will take your breath away.
This magnificent show was on one plant, happily wafting in the breeze. My only regret is that I couldn't whisper the name of it into my camera to be able to identify the bloom for you. I know that you will enjoy it just the same.
