Lavender and Roses

Nothing defines an English summer like a beautifully scented rose and the combination of roses and lavender is a marriage made in heaven.  The roses started into flower early this year but just seem to keep on going and they are getting better and better. 

blush noisette - so pretty and prolific

creme brulee - delicate

grandma - pretty in pink

etoile de holland? - amazing scent and deepest red
As for the lavender well, what can I say, a picture paints a thousand words, so judge for yourself...

So wonderful — lavender and roses is the epitome of romantic gardening, in my opinion. Blush noisette could be in a bridal bouquet.

Hi Deb, I couldn't agree more. Blush noisette is a fantastic climber and gives such value with roses from late May until at least October.
