The Name of the Rose?

As it was a very pleasant afternoon, I returned to the Walled Garden today to see whether I could find the names of some of the roses….alas very few of the ones that I particularly liked!

Anyway, here are two more collages for you to enjoy:


The Rose on the top right of the collage above is Great Expectations, but unfortunately I couldn’t find the name of the one on the bottom left which I especially liked.

In the collage below, the image on the top right is of a Mary Rose, and the bottom left is Rhapsody in Blue. I think the top left was Pink Perfection, but I’m not certain.





  1. No matter what they are called they are absolutely divine.

  2. That yellow rose is divine! What a lovely place to be able to visit so close to home Sue!

  3. Well whatever they are they look wonderful, I hope they smelled so good. Note to self: MUST visit David Austin rose garden when I return from Cornwall in mid-June. Should be pretty perfect around then!

      And where’s that?

      • David Austin Roses is in Albrighton near Wolverhampton so about 20 miles from me. I have been before in August, but the old-fashioned roses tend to be over by then. BTW I think your top collage bottom left might be a Camaieux and the second collage bottom right could possibly be Gertrude Jekyll. It looks very much like mine and should have a delicious smell.

      • Sue

        Ah, thank you, Jude. It was maddening not finding the names of some of these 🙂

      • I have lots of unnamed roses in my collection and the trouble is that sometimes signs are in the wrong place too so when I check I find it is nothing like the flower!

      • Sue

        Ah, yes – most unhelpful!

  4. That walled garden houses many delights Sue.
    And ‘The Name Of The Rose’ is one of my favourite books. (And a good film adaptation too.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Sue

      It was a good book, and unusually, a good film adaptation (I get quite annoyed when films don’t stay true to the original book – as was the case with Atonement, for example)

  5. ahh, so gorgeous! I love this walled garden you visit..if it were near me, I’d be there every day!

  6. i can smell them from here. lovely

  7. They are all gorgeous!

  8. I like the second set best, Sue. I like the collages but there’s no way to ‘pull them up big’ in this format and I wanted a closer look 🙂 Love the dark pinks in the centre. Top left in the first set might be Piccadilly (which my mum had) and I like bottom left too but don’t know it 🙂

  9. I love roses and these are gorgeous in their variety!

  10. Roses are such beautiful flowers – and the arrangements you’ve created are really very clever.
