OOh, these are just gorgeous and I can imagine their otherworldly fragrance. I thought that Alba roses were always white? Hope all is well with you and it's nice to find you still posting. Take care and greetings from what is left of Northern Cal.

Celestial is really pretty - I can well understand why it's often depicted in art! And William Moris is a very handsome gentleman!

I do love roses, especially old roses, with lots of petals and a sweet scent.
Thanks for the photos here today.
