Fresh Cut Friday - March

My neighbour across our back fence
has a lovely cottage garden with many roses.
A while ago she gave me a beautiful bunch of
David Austin roses, namely
Leander and Lucetta.

Leander is a luscious rose with delicate apricot petals,
on huge strongly fragrant blooms.

 and Lucetta has delicate pink blooms which
are enormous, opulent and fragrant.

If you are looking at buying new roses
for your garden this Spring
I can highly recommend both of these roses
which I am about to order for my garden too!
I like my garden being full of 'picky' things
so that I can always have a bowl of 
"fresh cut"
flowers in the house!

Today I'm joining Liz for

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my
last post - I appreciate each one of you.

Wishing you all a happy weekend

Take care and be kind to each other
   merci à bientôt



  1. Oh these roses are just so incredibly gorgeous, Shane. I wonder if they would grow in our climate? The colours are wonderful! xx

  2. Bonjour,
    Ces roses sont magnifiques !
    Merci pour le conseil...

  3. They are so beautiful and have such huge blooms! And so perfect, they don't look real! I can imagine how fragrant they are! Enjoy the weekend my friend!

  4. Simply lovely! Thanks for sharing such prettiness with us :) Happy weekend!

  5. Thanks for sharing your beautiful roses!
    Enjoy your weekend.

  6. They are absolutely stunning Shane. I want a neighbor like your kind one! Are these climbers by chance? I need to plant more climbers on the back fence - I have a New Dawn but it seems to be heading toward its demise, very tiny blooms and nowhere near as prolific as it used to be.

    Having bowls of these beauties around must make the house smell and look so lovely.

    Happy weekend dear - Mary

  7. What gorgeous roses , Shane. I think I need another one for my garden!

  8. Thank you for sharing your roses with us over here where there is still winter….they are lovely.

  9. Those are some big, beautiful blooms! You changed your blog up. Looks nice! Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  10. Oh! those roses are just stunning, Shane. What delicious colors. I can almost smell them. I hope you enjoy them for many days ahead. Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  11. Beautiful roses Shane - makes me feel like buying those ones myself ... even though mine are looking rather shabby & past their best by now. Do you have a new header or am I imagining it?? Looks lovely - happy weekend to you x0x

  12. Love the roses Shane,how wonderful to still have such beautiful blooms.The Waikato is not good for roses, we get the nasty fungi spot regardless of spraying.Some seem to be resistant to the disease. David Austens are really superb, I do have a few.Roses and Lavender being my favourite flowers. Have a great weekend. Shirley

  13. Dearest Shane,
    What a joy for receiving such lovely David Austin roses from your neighbor!
    One can never have too many roses. We used to have plenty of them until we lost most because of severe drought...
    Enjoy your weekend!

  14. Beautiful roses. Wish I could have some but I do not have any luck with roses. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

  15. Beautiful roses! I seem to have trouble growing them though and the Japanese Beetles eat them up!

  16. Hi Shane!
    David Austin roses are the best! These are gorgeous. I cut all of my roses way back about 3 weeks ago and they are just now coming back. But I should have some here in the next couple of weeks. In the mean time I'm going to have to enjoy yours! :)
    Thank you for joining in for FCF! :)
    I'm so glad you did!

  17. The colours are pretty and I can be they smell heavenly. Enjoy on my behalf please.

  18. The roses are stunning. I also love a picky garden and the more roses the better. I feel as if I can almost smell these in the beautiful photos.

  19. Dear Shane,

    The roses are so very beautiful, such gorgeous colours and I adore the old David Austin variety. Yes, you can almost smell the fragrance. Must be great having a kind neighbour like her.
    Happy weekend and hope you are enjoying the sunshine.

  20. What beautiful roses--English roses make the most beautiful bouquets!

  21. Loved your roses, what a kind neighbour you have. I too love roses, but since living in France I've not any success growing them here. I tried a few climbers, but only had success with a very thorny type which I've realised I've planted in the wrong place & can't get rid of it I've chopped it down to the ground twice & up it comes again, with even more vigour. A lovely pink one gets eaten by the deer. So maybe it's the thorny ones I need to choose, not a favourite for them. Enjoy the roses in your home.

  22. Oh Shane, what lovely pastel colors and how beautiful and healthy your roses look. I'm sure you are hit with a wall of sweet fragrance every time you open the window!

  23. Dear Shane,
    I also love roses, -and don`t know those two, but Oh my! they are beautiful both .Leander is amazing with the white-apricot petals, and Lucetta looks so wonderful, too. I wonder if they also smells heavenly ? How are you doing ,dear? I hope you can relax this weekend after a long week of hard work.
    Hugs and love, Dorthe

  24. I can almost smell the fragrance of your roses. So gorgeous. What a kind neighbour to give you such beauties.

  25. Splendid roses

  26. I love Davis Austin roses and we have a few in our garden. I haven't come across the ones you mentioned. They are so lovely. Sarah x

  27. I absolutely love David Austin heirloom roses. They are simply stunning! Your bouquets are so pretty. You are so lucky to have such a generous neighbor! Thanks for sharing them with us.
