 It's 'Eden' time. This is the one down the street. When I saw this peeking over the wall years ago, I knew I had to have one.

 Too bad the flowers are barely fragrant. Even that might be a bit of an exaggeration. But with other roses in the garden that smell fantastic, I can have one that isn't, especially since it will be viewed from a bit of a distance.

 This is the third year (second spring) for my baby.

 It has been faulted for having flowers too heavy for the stems to support.

But I think it is part of the charm. If the flowers were stark upright, it would just be another hybrid tea (beautiful, yes, but not quite as much). And it is the most popular rose in France.
