Le Rose Inglesi - Dedicato ad Emanuela.

Mia carissima e stimata amica,
vengo a te con questa mia per esprimerti con affetto immenso la mia gratitudine e la mia devozione per quanto hai sempre fatto per me.
Con i primi giorni caldi del mese di Giugno, dopo un Maggio decisamente instabile, le rose che, grazie a te, abitano il nostro roseto e che animano di sentori di essenze l'aria della tarda primavera stanno cominciando a fiorire e ci schiudono, gioise, le loro corolle dai mille petali, io credo abitate da qualche ninfa .. !
Mi hai fatto conoscere le meravigliose creazioni di David Austin che fino ad alcuni anni fa abitavano solamente i miei sogni e le mie fantasie, me ne hai fatto apprezzare l'unicità ed il prestigio e grazie alla guida dei tuoi consigli ci troviamo ad avere oggi la fortuna di poter godere di una discreta collezione di cotanta bellezza nel roseto dietro casa e negli angoli più romantici del nostro giardino.
Ed io ritrovo te in ogni rosa che fiorisce; riscopro la tua dolcezza tra i petali delle corolle rosa delicato, della "Constance Spry" (Austin,1961), corolle talmente ricche che riportano a quelle delle Centifolia ritratte dai pittori fiamminghi nel XVII secolo







ed in quello più antico, giocato tra le sfumure del pesca e dell'albicocca, della "The Shepherdess" (Austin, 2005);






il candore della "Winchester Cathedral" (Austin, 1988), con i petali avorio fortemente profumati di mirra, mi riporta alla tua ingenua fierezza, alla tua eleganza così spontanea







la Tea Clipper (Austin, 2006), nella pienezza delle sue corolle e di sfumature dei petali irregolari mi evoca la tua umiltà,








mentre il fiorire dei cespugli delle "The Generous Gardener"  (Austin 2002) mi riporta al tuo grande cuore;








nei miei rambler quali il "Malvern Hills" (Austin, 2000) ritrovo la tua perseveranza






ed ogni fioritura della "Geoff Hamilton" (Austin, 1997), che sempre più generosa si aggrappa all'arco d'ingresso del nostro portico, mi ricorda la prima foto delle vostre rose che ti inviai ...










La "Jude the Obscure" (Austin, 1995) nelle sue calde sfumature crema esprime tutta la tua mitezza,








nei petali talvolta scomposti delle profumatissime Scepter'd Isle (Austin, 1996) trovo riflesso il tuo spirito indomito ( e anche il mio !)





ma forse quella che più ti somiglia è la "Sweet Juliet" (Austin, 1989), sì, decisamente quella che più manifesta la delicatezza e la gentilezza del tuo nobile animo,






anche se credo che tutte le nostre rose, in fondo, un po' ti appartengano, credo che tu sia la vera "fairy" del nostro "rose garden" my sweet Emy.

Considerami sempre sinceramente e devotamente
tua aff.ma Amica





Dany



Le Rose Inglesi - Caratteristica di queste rose è la coniugazione tra la rosa antica, considerata prestigiosa per il suo profumo e le sue ricche corolle, e la rifiorenza quanto la resistenza ai parassiti che in epoche precedenti le rose, pur amatissime, non potevano vantare.. sono rose nuove, ma memori di profumi, forme e sfumature che datano al passato.
A partire dall'inizio degli anni '60 David CH Austin ebbe l'intuizione di creare questa nuova categoria di rose a cespuglio o sarmentose dall'aspetto perloppiù informale, dal portamento libero, ideali per il "natural garden" inglese e perfette per le bordure miste e fu così che, cominciando con la profumatissima Constance Spry, nel 1961, diede vita, ad oggi, a circa duecento Rose Inglesi, conosciute ed apprezzatissime in tutto il mondo, pluripremiate nel corso degli anni e sempre protagoniste all'annuale manifestazione londinese del Chelsea Flower Show.








English Roses – Dedicated to Emanuela

 
My dear and esteemed Friend,
I come to you with this to express my affection, my immense gratitude and devotion for what you've always done for me.With the first warm days of June, after a very unstable May, the roses, that thanks to you, populate our rose garden, making it alive with scients of essences the air of the late spring, are beginning to flourish and, happy, open their corollas of a thousand petals, I think inhabited by some nymph .. ! You have made me know the wonderful creations of David Austin that, until a few years ago, just lived only in my dreams and in my fantasies, you made me appreciate the uniqueness and prestige, and, thanks to the guidance of your advice, we are having today the fortune to be able and enjoy a quite a large collection of so much beauty in the rose garden behind home and in the most romantic corners of our garden. And I find you in every rose that blooms; I rediscover your sweetness between the petals of the delicate pink of the 'Constance Spry' (Austin, 1961), the corollas of which are so rich to reporting to those of centifolia portrayed by the Flemish painters in the seventeenth century


 - picture 1

and in the oldest nuance, played between peach and apricot rose, of "The Shepherdess" (Austin, 2005);

- picture 2

the whiteness of "Winchester Cathedral" (Austin, 1988), with ivory petals heavily perfumed with myrrh, brings me back to your naive pride, your spontaneous elegance.

- picture 3

The Tea Clipper (Austin, 2006), in the fullness of its flowers and the shades of its irregular petals reminds me of your humility,

- picture 4
while the flowering bushes of "The Generous Gardener '(Austin 2002) brings me back to your big heart;

- picture 5

in my rambler such as the "Malvern Hills" (Austin, 2000) I'm meeting your perseverance

- picture 6

and every flowering of 'Geoff Hamilton "(Austin, 1997), which clings ever more generous above the entrance arch of our porch, remember me the first photo of your roses that I sent you ... 

- picture 7

- picture 8

The "Jude the Obscure" (Austin, 1995), in its warm cream shades, expresses all your meekness,

- picture 9

the sometimes broken down petals of the fragrant Scepter'd Isle (Austin, 1996) I find reflected your indomitable spirit (and mine too!)

- picture 10

but perhaps the one that most resembles you is the "Sweet Juliet" (Austin, 1989), yes, definitely the one that best expresses the delicacy and kindness of your noble soul,

- picture 11

although I think that every roses of ours, after all, are a little belonging to you, I think you're the real "fairy" of our "rose garden" my sweet Emy.


Consider me always, sincerely, and devotedly
Your far too affectionate Friend
Dany  

English Roses - Characteristic of these roses is the conjugation between old rose, considered prestigious for its scent and its rich corollas, and the repeating flowering as resistance to Garden pests that in earlier times roses, even beloved, could not boast. . These are new roses, but mindful of scents, shapes and shades that date back to the past.

Since the beginning of the '60s David CH Austin had the idea of creating this new category of shrub or climbing roses looking particularly informal, free bearing, ideal for the English "natural garden" and perfect for mixed borders and so it was that, beginning with the fragrant Constance Spry, in 1961, he gave birth to about two hundred English Roses, known and highly appreciated all over the world, winning awards over the years and always protagonists of the annual event in London Chelsea Flower Show.

      anche io quando abitavo in città vivevo in un condominio e le rose le potevo solo ammirare e sognare, ma poi il destino ha voluto che optassi per la vita in aperta campagna ed ora le mie rose sono tra i tesori che impreziosiscono le mie giornate, soprattutto nella bella stagione .. chissà che anche tu un giorno non possa coltivarle e godere della gioa che donano direttamente nel tuo giardino, te lo auguro !!
      Buona passeggiata e grazie per la visita.

      David Austin Roses are far scented, they intoxicate you, spreading in the air the most wonderful perfums you can smell even meters and meters far from them !
      Mr.Austin's worth is that, since the 60's, of having breeded roses with the caracteristics of ancient roses, such as the strenght and the number of petals, which is always nearly one hundred, more or less, with the most precious essences scents, such as myrrh, vanilla and anything else ... they're so very special and when you begin to collect them, you cannot stop for anything on earth, if your garden allows you, of course !

      Have a wonderful day, today, my dear friend,

      adorable friend, so we've almost the same number of roses in our gardens !
      Actually I've missed their exact number, I stopped at 150 a few years ago, but every year some new rose arrives here at Tenuta Geremia, in our Rose Garden or in our Secret Garden ... I also do love ancient roses so much, both as bushes and as climbing, our tastes are so similar, aren't they !
      Yes, "Let's take the time to smell the roses !"

      if you have space enough in your garden, because these are bushes growing much in wideness and have strong roots needing to be placed quite far one another, you cannot help but adding them in your little corner of paradise !

      Well, Finnish climate is probably too cold for English roses, I know that they grow well and healthy till the north of Germany, but in all the regions above they require surely many more cares, even if they're so very strong, for real !
