Treated myself to this on holiday :)

Well I visited a garden center on holiday in Lyme Regis with strict instructions by my partner that I have no more room for plants! So I came away with a David Austin Gentle Hermione rose lol I have to say I've never been a big fan of roses but after seeing this one I fell in love with it! I love the cupped shape rose as opposed to the type that open right out. I had a look at the reviews on the internet and people are saying that the gentle hermione smelled awful and smelled of babies nappies! Lol but I absolutely love it! Does anyone else have this rose and what do other people think?

Im definately converted into a rose fan!image
