I am so proud to show you these pictures of the beautiful roses of our garden. We planted 3 types of old Bourbon roses in September last year and I am so pleased to be able to decorate our home with our own wonderful old garden roses this year!

We planted the Honorine de Brabant, the Madame Isaac Pereire and the Ulrich Brunner roses. They are all blooming at this moment and I will show you pictures of them in our garden later.

I have to thank Trish of Trouvais for her help to choose the right roses! Trish is a connoisseur of old garden roses! She already posted wonderful posts of her garden roses on her blog.

This is the Ulrich Brunner Bourbon rose. She is so beautiful and her leaves feel as velvet!
