The light in this photo is spectacular. They look like David Austen roses. So gorgeous. We used to have quite a few at our old house. I remember their fragrance being heavenly!

I just read that you won a mixer at blogherfood.

This designer cooks, I have two of these climbing roses in my backyard. I'd have more of them if I had the room!

E, Why am I not surprised to know that this is your favorite rose? We share so many common favorites already that this too comes as no surprise to me!

Brandi, thank you!

Kelly, I was playing around with the silhouette setting on my camera again; it makes shots like these easy to achieve. Sombrueil looks a lot like an Austen rose, which is part of the reason I love them so. They do have a wonderful fragrance, but they get overpowered by the Yves Piaget tea roses that flank it.

Hi Gale! I did win a mixer at The Tasty Kitchen cocktail mixer on Friday night in Atlanta. I never win anything, so it was a surprise for sure! They shipped it to me and it arrived this past week. So nice!
