I am well aware that I have written a few posts about roses lately but they are so breathtaking at the moment, I just have the need to share them with you.
This is the most amazing rose I think I have ever grown. It is supposed to be Silver Jubilee but I suspect the label is wrong. I am still waiting for a rose aficionado to tell me if it really is a Silver Jubilee and if not what it is called.
It doesn’t detract from its beauty though. It changes tones as it developes, starting with a yellow bud, opening into a yellow rose with a pink edging and progresses to a mainly pink rose with a yellow middle. It is also quite a large bloom with a very faint delicate perfume.
I am bowled over by it and every time I go out into the garden, I stand looking at it, mesmerised.
The photos in today’s post were taken this morning. You can see the difference in the shading from the top photo to the bottom photo. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I think this is just fabulous.
