December Roses

Nearly 15 years ago we planted Madame Alfred Carriere climbing roses thinking they were white with touches of cream and ivory.  They are pink, which we probably would have not chosen intentionally but they have continued to supply buckets of the most beautiful, fragrant, cuttable roses year after year.  The largest crop comes in late spring/early summer, more come in the fall and most years we even get some late fat gorgeous blooms in early winter.  These photos are from this morning!!
