We were back at the farm on the weekend for a birthday camping sleepover (hmmm, more like 'talk-over'!) for my newly 13-year-old daughter. I made Princess Martha's White Chocolate & Strawberry Cheesecake as the birthday cake - oh, my! It was VERY good!!
Being back at the farm allowed me to catch with my beloved roses which are blooming profusely right now. Here are just a few of them, mostly David Austins:
The softest pink of Mary Rose
One of my favourites, called 'Othello'
'Othello' again, beautiful perfume, but the most wicked of thorns!
'Golden Celebration'
'Perfume Perfection'
If I could send the heavenly scent of these roses across cyberspace to you I would!


  1. I love your roses. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing---I like to stop and smell the roses, even if it is over the internet.

  2. Happy Birthday birthday girl. I can smell your roses from here.
    Hugs Mary.

  3. wow - I just love David Austins. They are divine

  4. Your roses are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Our roses are looking pretty good too at the moment. I just love roses, they're my absolute favourites - yours are looking fabulous ;o).

  6. I have no roses so I'll enjoy yours instead. Cheesecake looks wonderful!

  7. That cake looks yummy - but the roses - oh my, how beautiful! We are nearing the end of fall here - we had a heavy, windy rain Saturday night that took a lot of leaves off the trees - it's the one part of autumn I don't like - almost wish the snow would come soon - almost. Nice to know flowers are blooming somewhere. SuzK

  8. Your roses are beautiful, thanks for sharing the photos

  9. Love your roses. We are just in the process of having our front garden re-designed and I'm on the lookout for what roses to plant. I will take the names down of a few of those, they are beautiful and I figure if you have roses they need to be fragrant. Thanks for sharing them.

  10. That cake looks SO good and those roses are just beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Happy birthday to your daughter, all the way from Iceland. Your roses are amazing!

  12. Mary is one of my favourites and is tucked away in a corner and I can always smell her flowering then find the roses............I would like to get more Mary's....
