Fantastic!! Bet it has a lovely scent too?

I've got this one too, Gattina...it's blooming its socks off right now!

Just lovely - the colour is set off beautifully by the grey wall!

Thank you, M! Yes, Karen, I saw your picture - yours looks darker than mine. I think this is such a lovely colour mix - cream/green/pink. They seem to enjoy hot and dry.

Yes, mines much more intensely pink...Do you think it's the soil that does it? They're really easy to look after too - just stick them in the ground and water them til they're comfy - and away they go!

Actually, I'm just looking at yours again Gattina...I think mine looked more like that, when I first got it! I wouldn't have picked a pink rose at that time!

Goodness, I rather hope mine won't get any darker - I like her just the way she is. I have lots of other, darker pink ones!

Mine's only two years old...it must be the soil!

Oh, well...I didn't notice before now, so I suppose I have to forgive her...

6 Jun, 2012

 

I'm sure you have a very forgiving soul!

6 Jun, 2012

 

That's me....lol!

6 Jun, 2012

 

I think so!!!! Either that or a peanut!!!

6 Jun, 2012

 

I'm very patient and forgiving...well for anything up to a month...;)

It took me two years to run this particular rose to ground, having seen it once in someone's garden. I looked and asked EVERYwhere without luck, and then one day found two of them on a little tiny market stall by chance. They grow so well here on a hot south-facing wall, are virtually pest and blight-free, and have beautiful dark, glossy foliage. One of them I planted right next to an ailing "Schoolgirl" rose that every year has a dreadful case of blackspot and loses it's leaves very easily, and the two seem to have struck up a partnership, with the branches growing together, and both roses thriving amazingly. Must be love!
