Flowers From Our Yard: Acapella Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Acapella is one of our newer roses. It is a red blend hybrid tea, and we have it in a container along our driveway. Acapella also has a pleasant fragrance, and it is quickly becoming one of our favorites.

What? No acapella jokes? Of course that rose is a beauty, but it is so tempting to kid around about the name. Well, if no one else did, I won't either.

Well, on that note... Oops-- I did it; didn't I?
