Great shots of the roses. I have several Austin Roses, they're always very fragrant.

I read "Carding Mill" and wondered what a mill was doing in Tulsa!!!!
What an unusual name - I wonder why the horticulturist chose that?
Beautiful photograph though.

I love all English Roses. David Austin was really onto something when he began crossing old roses with newer varieties! This one is a keeper!
