I have four pale pink gallicas which are similar, but are showing slight differences. I have placed photos in My Garden page. I have temporarily named them with my location, followed by (the provenance location). Both the GS (Great Southern bed) and the TT (Tractor Track bed) plants are within 10 metres of each other.

Responding further to member GHS69 and Margaret Furness.

Thanks Margaret. I am not so sure about burnout, but after a bout of influenza for both of us, I knew I had to take more rest. It has actually been wonderful and I have read, rested, got out into my garden, thoroughly overhauled the garage shelving, thrown out enormous amounts of junk in the garage, bought new lamps, and looked at re-curtaining the whole house. After 5-ish hours a day consistently from 2006 to 2021 on HelpMeFind, this return to a normal retirement at the age of 80 has been most welcome. I know my husband Rob, at 92, also is appreciative.
I am feeling most guilty that there are areas that I could still help on this site. However the eyesight is not as good these days, and I cannot cope with the numerous glitches and very slow speeds on a satellite internet service. It is time for me to stop.
It has been exhilerating, and a fascinating journey with HelpMeFind and I am deeply grateful to the website owners who allowed me to contribute to the history of the Australian rose scene on this incredible website. Sharing rose research is in this way has been rewarding and I do recommend it to others. My fond regards to all the rosarians I have met on HelpMeFind.

Patricia, you have been warning, but I cannot believe it! We worked so well together. It has been a great journey. Please look in from time to time!

Just saw this. Best wishes for your "normal" retirement, Patricia. It's been a pleasure to get to know you. And thank you for all your work over the years. You've been a great asset to this site.

Thank you Kathy, Marlorena, Andrew and Give Me Caffeine. Your kind words are much appreciated.
And dear Jedmar - of course I will be looking in. The love of roses and their history does not suddenly dissipate. My maiden surname actually included the word ‘rose’, so it is ingrained.

Hi there
I am trying desperately to purchase - a rose called Archiduc Charles, which I recently saw at the South Australian Rose Society show. As I love heritage roses, I would very much like to purchase this rose if at all possible. I would love to hear whether any person may have this rose. Many thanks Helen

Hello Helen,
Your HelpMefind just says you are in "Australia". (It might help if it says South Australia - do you want to add that?)

I am guessing you are in SA and I am going to pass your email address on to some Australian ladies who will certainly be able to help you. Get back to me if you need to.

When you look up a rose on helpmefind, there's a Buy From button at the top right of the page. Thomas for Roses at Woodside list this one; I think they may be on their annual fishing trip, but when you contact them you could order a plant for next winter.
