Here is my antique rose, Duchess de Brabrand.
This is the one my snake was in yesterday.
Wish I would have had the camera when it was intwinned in that trellis behind it.

Seems the "Duchess" was Winston Churchhill's favorite rose. Whenever possible he would wear one in his buttonier. It smells heavenly.

I appoligize for not peeking in your bushes last night. But the way some folks talk its better if one is invited.
Beautiful flowers. And the history tidbit makes there existance all the more exciting.

Haha, Fern, I realized the title I put did not give a clue. I should have titled it;

I know my antique roses by name but I realize to others "Duchess" sounds like a dog's name!! ;-)

Now that one's a beauty, Lenore, I love roses but since I moved into my dad's home haven't have any. Now you come and post this! Thanks for sharing.:-)
Take Care

Thanks, Patria.
I love old garden roses, they are so fragrant and tough.
They are survivors and that is what I need.
In my yard only the strong survive. LOL
I have one or two that are not the antique variety but I am partial to them.

I lived in San Antonio for three years, in late 70's, next to Lackland base. When we were looking for a rented home I decided on one that had a beautiful climbing white rose, a little smaller than yours. The plant was huge and wonderfuly fragrant. Had to leave it behind, though.:-(
