Today's Flowers - Climbing Roses

Here are two views of the Climbing Rose Lady Hillingdon, first available in 1917. It is very fragrant and flowers continuously throughout the summer.

'Warm Welcome', the climber below, is a modern rose, dating from 1991. It is also fragrant and blooms continuously into winter - a very cheering sight on a dark and dismal day.

  1. All are so pretty! Even though it's small I love the effect of the first shot.

  2. Such lush petals on the Lady Hillington! A very old variety - it's lovely!
    Love the closeup of Warm Welcome.

    My flower post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

  3. Very beautiful, I love the soft yellow in the first rose.
    Have a wonderful day,

  4. The first is very beautiful - I can just imagine the Edwardians in their gardens, pruning it. And both flowers have lovely names, too.

  5. Pretty yellow and orange roses! Thanks for visiting me last week via Today's Flowers. Greetings from East Borneo.

  6. Where did you get your 'Lady Hillington' from? She looks delightful, Very similar to my 'Sombreuil' but more into the pale yellow shade of 'Michelle'.
    Both roses look to be a delight to live with.

  7. Ow, so beautiful flowers! I love them. Have a great day :)
