When you buy roses in bud, do you ever wonder if they will turn out just like the pictures on the labels? I did and do and sometimes they don't and I'm disappointed. This one, however, is perfect, apart that is, from the colour. To me it looks pink, not apricot, but it is so beautiful I really don't mind. This rose is in its third year of flowering. It will never be a huge bush. It stays small and compact, but it blends in beautifully with the other flowers in the border.
The weather looks to be beautiful today and everything in my garden is lovely, as they say.
