I spend so much time over the annual David Austin rose catalog. I circle everything. Literally. The pages are dog-eared from the constant handling. Then I have the tough decision of finalizing the purchase! 

This year, I purchased The Ancient Mariner and The Alnwick Rose. Recently the area of the garden I call 'Cottage Row' was expanded to include these beautiful roses, along with other gorgeous specimens coming in soon. 

Follow me on Instagram to see my daily story. You can view Cottage Row as it 'blooms' this year.

P.S. If you love a vintage rose look, check out this card in the shop.
