Medallion Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The rain we've had for the past few days stopped for a while yesterday and we actually had some sunshine. During the afternoon I took this picture of Medallion, which has the largest blossoms of any of our roses. It only has a slight fragrance, but we do like the apricot color of the petals.

Oh wow, it's so vivid I can almost touch its velvety petals! I love this shade...it's paleness makes it look delicate and sweet!

A very beautiful rose, George. I love the way the light highlights its texture.
