I tried to get some pictures taken before the rain; especially for the roses.
Roses don’t like rain at all…
You can see our pergola completely invaded by “R. Alberic Barbier” and with part of our grape vine. Alberic Barbier, bred by Barbier Frères & Compagnie, 1900, is a wonderful climbing rose; breaded fromR. wichuraiana X 'Shirley Hibbard' (A yellow Tea);
The grapes are already there; tiny grapes but already showing their fruits to be.
It is the first time that “Albéric” and the grapes are cohabiting like this.
Another beautiful rose we have is “R. Fantin Latour” its roses smell heavenly good!!!
His flowers are wonderful as well!
“R. Fantin Latour” is an old Centifolia rose.
R. Rosalita is coming from Moschata Roses (Louis Lens 1997) and is wonderful; from light orange or peach buds fading into white blossoms.
