Gone with the fairies

Many years ago my Grandma had two rambling button fairy roses one of which was pink and the other red. When I say red, I mean farmer’s red which is a deep red pink a most old-fashioned colour that once adorned the lips of women during the Second World War. It is a flower colour that I really love and can be found on the common peony.

I have tried to purchase rambling button fairy roses over a very long time but without success … but today I found this beautiful pink rambling fairy rose – not quite a small as the button variety but still tumbling with small flowers and buds. Its scent is soft and a mixture of rose and apple blossom. The flower size of this naturally beautiful flower is similar to that of the wild rose.

That is beautiful. When I was a kid I used to get a hanging plant like that for my mother every year for Mother's Day.
