Flowers From Our Yard: Moonstone Rose



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

Moonstone is one of the newer roses in our garden. It does very well in a container. The blossoms are beautiful -- white tinged with pink -- and the rose has a mild fragrance.

You are a great romantic! Betsy is a lucky gal. You cut the first rose for her?

It is so soft.

I love the subtlety of this flower! Whether it be the mild fragrance, or the light pink accents, it comes across humble and understated. Much like a person of excellent character and noble moral fiber.
