Rose finally flowers


By alextb


Some of you who have read blogs and questions from me, may know that I was cencerned about a rose which did not flower last year.

Well, as the weather warmed up, and I started to wonder whether it would flower this year. An exciting thing happened.

I spotted a spot of white out of my window, and to make sure I wasn’t seeing things I rushed outside. The white fragrance rose had a white bud.

The pictures are below:

The sign of white

The first bud

The rose opens

The flower in all its glory.

The frangrance is lovely too.

I just have to wait for the other roses to do the same.

I will blog step by steps of others when the bloom , if people are interested.
