Fie on this rain!

I had to cut these flowers to rescue them from the rain. The big floofy pink one on the left is Constance Spry. She is the original English Rose, a once-blooming climber with Belle Isis as a parent.

Some say she is the best Austin rose, but most people are turned off by her lack of rebloom. She is very beautiful, and as fierce a grower as any Gallica. I hope I can get some outdoor pictures of her tomorrow!
