my friday find...

~Golden Celebration~

It is the end of the week and time for my favorite find.  Friday Finds is a place to gather and share...a chance to cherish life's simple pleasures...

My find this week is my new David Austin rose.  I discovered these English beauties several years ago...and now i finally have this treasure in my gardens.  It's aroma is amazing as i walk out of my kitchen door each is a wonderful combination of strawberry and wine. Its flower reminds me so much of my lovely peonies.  It has a giant full petalled cup with repeating blooms all summer long...
 I just know that more varieties of David Austins need to find a home in my gardens.

If you have a free here to discover other fabulous finds!

Until next time...


  1. Oh my goodness this is a beauty . Lovely Nancy.

  2. I only have landscaping roses as I'm afraid I just couldn't give proper care to such a beauty as this. But, you are tempting me to try.

  3. Gorgeous Nancy,i love the colour and can imagine the scent....

  4. Repeating blooms, how wonderful! This is truly a beauty of a rose and a lovely capture.

  5. Hi, Nancy Jean! Oh ... this rose is exquisite! Your PoV is perfection. Thanks for sharing ... I think I shall have to research.

  6. Nancy you have really excited me with this D.A. rose photo. We planted four of the D.A. rose bushes several weeks ago - they are looking wonderfully healthy, and one had 3 small buds already! Now I can hardly wait for them to bloom. So nice to see yours that look very large and beautiful!

  7. Oh, it is beautiful! You have made me want to look for these roses too. Your enthusiasm is catching :)
