Thank you for sharing these with us Cindy! I love roses. Many of the old China roses bud one colour, bloom another and then fade to a darker shade.I hope to someday have a garden full of them since unlike the hybrid teas, the old Chinas are well adapted to the ridiculously hot, humid climate of the Southeastern United States. I bet Paul Neyron would thrive in your climate!
“I came to admit I was powerless over”…..roses! (Please click to enlarge).
Which is why I planted more bare root roses last fall in exotic colors, and why they are blooming now.
“Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.”
I see this power in all the creations of nature.
Can you see the divinity of a rose?
These are Koko Locos. Chocolate roses, that bud brown, and turn lavender. I only learned of them last year.
And now they are blooming.
Cheers to you and may roses bring their peaceful power to you~
