David Austin Roses....?


I adore the English David Austin Roses! I look forward to having them back in my (real) garden, but until then I shall make do with these 1:12 scale ones. These I made at the same time as the pink one I showed in my last post....I love the soft pink, but these are the exact colour as the ones that I had growing on the farm....I was going to say, 'less work in these', but that is certainly not true!!!

..It would look like Constance Spry, but this is more abricot? Very nice, it brings back the memories of the smell of summer..

I love the colour, soft and warm, a real souvenir of lazy summer afternoons. I could fill my home with them Mini hugs Rosanna

I also love roses, their scent, so delicate, so sensual ... but the color I prefer is yellow, with the edges of the petals colored in red, I do not know the name, but among the roses, it is my favorite!
I see you're giving to gardening in this period .. Watch out for thorns ah ah! Wishes!

One of my favourite David Austin Roses is Belle Story...Apricot in the centre - the softest pink on the outside. I had a collection of roses in my last house. Still building it up here! Yours in mini are spectacular!
