We had these gates made a few years ago to fit between the driveway's stone pillars by a very talented local artisan after a trip to Charleston. We came home enthralled with all of the iron work we had seen there. The gates were intentionally treated to be a rusty color; I simply love them, they are one of my favorite additions to the garden. The rose, alas I don't remember the name, although as I said before it is an old fashion tea and like many of my vintage roses it probably came from the Antique Rose Emporium; they have a wonderful selection of old roses. This rose is a very large bush reaching easily from six to eight feet and blooms almost continuously.

I don't know if there is anything prettier than a rose and I must admit that pink roses are my favorite. Do you have a favorite colored rose...?
