Flowers From Our Yard: Double Delight Rose



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

If I were told that I could only have one rose, it would be Double Delight. It's a beautiful rose that starts out as a mostly white bud and changes each day as the blossom matures. One thing that doesn't change is the delightful fragrance.

I tried to add the fragrance to this post, but Blogger wouldn't accept it.

It is even more a challenge to describe a fragrance than a taste. That is a beautiful flower, and I hope to someday test its fragrance.
