A Rose In Bloom

I went out to check on my flowers today and I found this beauty. I'm so thrilled about it that I'm already planning on buying more roses next year.

Shop news: Rose facial cream is in the works!

It is a stunning picture! I can smell it, if I try hard. :)

Thank you both. I was surprised when I saw it. This is my first rose bush and I really didn't think it would do well, considering my track record with flowers LOL. This is very encouraging. Maybe I'm starting to get closer to that balance of water, sunlight and giving it my attention. Let's hope.

Wow! Love how the pink just pops!

Ooh, I'm really into rose facial products! Keep me posted on your facial cream.
p.s. Do your roses have aroma? I ask as I have one rose bush in the front of our house, planted by the previous owner. It bloomed this year. Beautiful bright coral blooms . . . with absolutely no aroma. It was a bummer.

Hi Charna,
this rose has a very very faint scent. It's supposed to be one of the more fragrant varieties so I'm hoping as it matures the scent will get a little stronger.

I'll keep you posted on the facial cream. :-)
