The Many Faces of Janet

The rose 'Janet' that is~~~
In our family garden bed, my namesake plant has been blooming for the last week or so.  It is a David Austin rose.   Listed as a climber, it can be pruned to shrub form, which is how I prefer to keep it.  So, without further ado I present 'Janet'---

Sure glad to have this beauty in my garden.

  13. Hi Janet,
    Isn't it so nice to have a beautiful rose with your name. I like that you organized the succession of shots so that it was like watching it bloom. Janet is beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!

  14. What a gorgeous rose. Seems it takes after it's owner.
