On Sundays, I’m sharing a square cropped picture of a pink rose as part of Becky’s Square In September challenge. We are invited to dip in and out of this daily challenge as we please. She’s looking for a post where the main photograph is square and the subject is In The Pink.
Several people have asked if the roses I’ve been sharing this month are especially fragrant. Last week’s was not, so I promised a highly scented one for this week and I have kept my word. Rosa ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ has as strong and lovely an Old Rose fragrance as anyone could hope for. Scratch and sniff!
(It might work, if you have an active imagination).

I’ve come across this rose somewhere and its a very fine choice, I’m glad you’ve reminded me of it. This is a beautiful entry for InThePink!
I’m glad to have brought back memories.
What a perfect entry for your contest! Lovely.
We can just go out to our own – chosen for the scent you describe
That might end up being a different form of scratch and sniff – you sniff, it scratches.
oh this is one of my favourites. I remember smelling it at Kew last year. There were so many scented roses but this one just captured our noses!!
I’ve seen this rose have that effect several times in a rose garden – one person samples the scent, exclaims in delight and calls their companions over.
Exactly what we all did!
