Just Arrived at My Door Step a French "Antique" Rose!

I have been patiently waiting, this rose has been out of stock for a while, but it finally came in and VINTAGE GARDENS has sent it to me in the mail. It's a vintage rose climber called "White Maman Cochet" and it takes my breath away... Now to patiently wait for it to grow so I can experience it in all its glory! XO, Christie



  1. Love those kind of versicolor roses that change all along their life.
    In my French garden roses are under the rain, living the end of their life.

  2. Good morning Christie, what a good morning greeting from your new beautiful rose! It's so ironic, I have spent several minutes and a cup of coffee or two, looking at your pinterest. I've always wanted to tell you how stunningly beautiful your creations are and that I'm so thankful I was able to buy one of your original vintage picture frames. I put a picture of my daughter in it and it's breathtaking. Hopefully one of these years I'd LOVE to come to one of your shows and buy another piece of your art! Anyway, thanks soooo much for sharing your little garden in the world because you make my life so much prettier!

  3. Your rose is beautiful! I miss my roses. I'm working on a new flowerbed & will go pick out some barefoot roses At the nursery soon! I hope all is going well for you. See you soon.

    Take care,

  4. Hi Christie,
    It sure was worth waiting for,it is so,so beautiful x

  5. Hopefully this will serve as an inspiration for a new painting.

  6. Dearest Christie,

    This Tea & China Climber is so special because of its nodding habit! It shows its beauty to the human eye... For you a great inspiration. By the way thanks a lot for passing on this great source for roses. I did search for my Jardin de Bagatelle but have not found it... Miss it, it succumbed to last year's heat and drought.
    Hugs to you,

  7. Just beautiful Christie!! Can't wait to see more pics:)


  8. Very beautiful rose and very similar looking to "Princesse Grace de Monaco".

  9. Christie, Your rose will be right at home in your little french garden. As for me, the only green thumb I will ever have, is the one I get paint on while doing my artwork!LOL So glad there are others like you that can raise these wonderful roses.
