That sums up my behavior after another great trip up the stairs with the mail pile today. This time, it had nothing to do with food – the 2009 David Austin Roses catalogue was buried beneath the tax forms and credit card solicitations. If you’re not familiar with David Austin and you love to garden – you’re seriously missing out. To make a long story short, David CH Austin (father) is a rose breeder, specialist grower and author – he released his first rose in 1961 and has taken the rose market by storm since then with his billowy roses in gorgeous colors. To date father (and son) have released over 200 varieties of roses from climbing to shurb to ground cover roses.
I’m putting together my order as I type – if you’re intererested, you better order quickly, most varieties sell out in a matter of weeks!
