Roses in Bloom

My garden roses have just dropped the last of their delicate petals.

I was worried that I would miss them while we were away, but I didn't. It's their second year, and after a very long, harsh winter, I was afraid they wouldn't make it. I've been warned by a few neighbors that roses do not do well in our gardens. So when they started budding, the last thing I wanted to do was miss them in bloom.

These are the only roses I have in my garden. They're called Winchester Cathedral, a David Austen variety.

As roses are something that are new to me, I've been looking for some helpful reading on how to care for them.

Any recommendations on helpful resources would be greatly appreciated.
