Hello, sweet friends, and welcome to Bunny Cottage! I just cut the first roses of the season. Every year it is one of my favorite and first roses to bloom, and it is called "Old Blush". This rose dates back to 1752, and it is a china rose. Most of the roses I grow are either chinas, teas, or noisettes. These are the antique roses that do best in the south. When I say "tea", I am not talking about the more modern hybrid teas. These antique roses have been around for many decades. These are the roses that you find growing on old homesteads and cemeteries throughout our country. They have survived with virtually no care at all. Well, I hope that signs of spring are coming to you. Have the sweetest of days!
"Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, a box where sweets compacted lie."~George Herbert
