Last night after dinner, I noticed that the peach-colored rose bush was in full bloom. The light was catching them just so, and they were fairly begging to be photographed. I put down the iPhone, pushed aside the iPad and pulled out the Nikon.
Wish I knew the name of this floribunda–the coloring is so beautiful. Parts of the flower look pink, then peach, then pink again . . . .
There’s even a hint of gold inside.
Thank you, previous owners, for planting this.
This is a very elegant rose, I like the different shades, subtle. I was wondering whether it smelled as nice as it looked.
I’m afraid it doesn’t, Caroline. I’ve only had one beautiful rose that smelled as good as it looked: Perfume Delight. Would love to replace the somewhat boring white rose with that. We also have a dark pink rosebush that smells heavenly, but the blooms are not out yet. Photos coming soon. 🙂
Isn’t summer evening light so wonderful. Beautiful texture and colour in the rose. Lovely.
The light has been incredible here the past few nights. Glad you liked this.
I love the delicate, soft colors on the petals. What a nice treat left from the previous owners. The previous owners of my apartment left 2 chipped cups and a plate. 😛
Awwwww! I am really grateful they didn’t dig up the rosebushes. Have heard of people doing that.
I can almost smell them. So beautiful.
Thank you. 🙂
Beautifully captioned images/post, “Exquisite”.
I appreciate that, Susan. How are things?
