Any roses out yet?

Kathleen Harrop is climbing very very slowly up the arch by the gate. The flowers are a beautiful pearly pink and the scent is intense, but I still have to stoop down very low to enjoy it. Sadly, the black spot has just begun….

When you started this thread I had no roses on our balcony open as yet but now nearly 2 weeks later my miniature rose has opened!

Very pretty! I do love pink roses best, do you know what your miniature is called?
My favourite this week is Tour de Malakoff, summer flowering only, starts off mauve-pink and darkens as it ages to magenta-violet, particularly in the centre and fades off to a violet-grey. So many colours to admire, and good perfume too.

Sorry I hadn’t seen your reply before today. To answer your question, no, I don’t know the name of the miniature rose. I was given it last year by a friend at church. I’ve been through my photos from last year but I don’t even seem to have one from last year! Yet I have a photo from the beginning of March this year where it is starting to sprout.

I’m enclosing a photo of the rose in flower on our balcony this month. It is still flowering today but going past its best.
