My friend Lauren told me to get a few plants of this lovely David Austin rose, Queen of Sweden. I may wind up getting ten more of this plant, it's amazing! Lots of flowers, long straight stems, very few thorns, and look at that perfect, dainty flower!

Plus, the fragrance, oh, the fragrance of this rose. I'll be interested to see if she pales a bit more as the season moves along, right now she's quite pink!
