Normally I like to give the full botanical/horticultural description of all the plants I photograph. This lovely rose in our front garden was in a poor state when we moved in more than ten years ago, but we have been able to nurture it back to what it is here. Sadly, I have no idea of its name. Can any enthusiasts out there offer an informed view? All attempts will be gratefully received. What a magnificent example it is, however, of Man and Nature in cooperation.
Update: Mariaan Maritz has suggested it might be the Queen Elizabeth rose. I think she may well be right: it was a favourite of my Grandmother’s. But can anyone else confirm this, or propose a different name?
