Time to start a 2021 Gallicas in bloom thread?

Hi all,

Since there are a few Gallica culture conversations rolling on the forum and some lovely photos of Marianne, I thought it might be a good time to start a general Gallicas in bloom thread. As most of you know by now, Gallicas are my absolute favorite class of roses. My region’s Gallica season is just putting a toe beyond the starting gate, but I’ll begin the conversation with photos of an unnamed, not-in-commerce-yet variety of Paul Barden’s since it is always my first to bloom. ”Paul’s Unnamed Purple Gallica” boasts fragrant shades of silvery pink, deep pink, purple-magenta and mauve-blue. Its array of shifting colors is hard to capture with my phone camera. Please jump in as your Gallicas unfold! I may duck in and out of the conversation as time constraints dictate. Happy Gallica season everyone!


P.S. Pardon the debris from the flowering ash trees above. It makes all of my roses in this bed look like Moss roses in need of a tidy-up!
