Last year we spent our holidays in Scotland. I was delighted with all the roses in the tiny front gardens and their beautiful fragrance.
At home I dreamed about my own red Austin roses in my garden and here they are:
If you open a window, the nice smell comes into the house.
I don’t have enough blossoms on my own, so I used the fragrant roses from my neighbour to prepare a
Rose Petal Champagne Jelly
It taste as it smells: roses and the whole house is sweet with roses.
