Exciting and love the name too. My red camellias appear to be bursting out but it is poring down rain right this minute.

Truly, Gertrude Miss Jekyll is my most favourite rose of all . . I will never forget the display of many Gertrude rose shrubs in the rose garden at Tatton Park. The sight was usurped only by the incredible, old rose fragrance . . Magic!

Hi there, Oh what a beautiful rose-I do imagine she is heavily scented. I no longer have long stem's in my yard but I do have a old fashioned variety that grows wild-love it! Thanks for reminding me that spring is just around the corner.
Hugs, Noreen

Hi, Julie Marie, dear friend,
She is a beauty and one of my very favorites! I can hardly wait for spring and the return of our sweet hummingbirds. I know you love them, too. Have a beautiful rest of the week! Vicki

Hi Julie! I don't really look forward to Spring, as it means that here in Miami it starts becoming humid and hotter! Hope yours is nice though:-)

No, I'm not a cowgirl boots type of gal but Texas sure is full of them!
