    What an intriguing photo of that beguiling pink.

      it’s the bathroom mirror which is quite suitable in these autumn years, we don’t need to observe the wrinkles & folds in our faces too sharply

    Hey Mo, one of my favourite roses too. Just love the delicate sweet peppery perfume. I am lucky to have three fabulous trees, so hardy and love a good cut back. it sure is magic to see those tiny buds burst into bloom. as always you have taken a lovely picture. oxox

      Wow, he perfume from your three Cecil Brunners would be intoxicating. I use the dried petals for pot pourri and sachets along with a bit of lavender and rosemary, I have added mugwort too for dream pillows but haven’t grown it since the early 80’s… yikes, that’s getting to be a long time ago!
      It must be getting chilly down there!

    My favourite rose! My mom loved them too.

    Love the little Cecil Brunners, have very good memories of them from my childhood on the flower farm. Am I right in thinking they are very thorny? Must get one… This is a beautiful photo, Mo and I love the look of your mirror.

    • Mo Crow says:

      The Cecil Brunners aren’t too thorny but they are rampant and need to be hard pruned every winter to keep them in our little inner city gardens, the very thorny rambler is Sea Foam, beautiful flowers but scary to prune!

    Cecil Brunners evoke such memories- my Nana brought me a bouquet of them for each of our three children (even though they were born in different months). I planted one in my garden as a tribute to her and the perfume is glorious!
