If you ever want to look at floral eye candy, the website of David Austin Roses is such a place. My flower today is the Austin Rose “Abraham Darby”, named after one of the great iron working pioneers of the English Industrial revolution. The description on the website describes the scent as strong and fruity. I think “gorgeous” sums it up. I love this rose for that scent and for the beautiful colour and shape of the flowers. It’s like an old fashioned rose but it doesn’t suffer from mildew or blackspot. Just perfect.
