blooms around the house

The first two photos are of the old-fashioned rose bushes that, I assume, were planted when the owner first lived here before building the homestead down the drive. I have to say that I am intrigued by them, with their rose hips and tiny blossoms.

The old roses from Persia are the most fragrant.
