Perhaps not all pink, but these roses do make me feel happy, just as pink and Fridays do.
I hope they make you feel happy too!
If you are buying rose bushes for your garden how do you choose them? For scent? For colour?
The man of the house advises, "Always buy your roses after a shower of rain."
"That way you can tell the ones that are going to look bravely up from their stems come sunshine or shower, from those that will droop in a bad summer."
My favourite rose is Double Delight . . . it has the most beautiful old fashioned rose perfume, just like potpourri . . . and reminds me of my grandmother.
Heavily flushed and edged carmine to red. It begins with a red bud opening to this lovely bi-colour and then fades slowly to cream with a light pink edge. Bushes are of medium size, of good health and vigor with long strong stems and a strong fragrance.
Double Delight is one of the World's favourite tea roses, and was inducted into the Rose Hall of Fame in 1985.
