Tahitian Sunset Rose



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

We think this rose with its orange-yellow blend of color is beautiful. I've never been to Tahiti, but I imagine that sunsets on that island were the inspiration for the name of this rose -- Tahitian Sunset.

I've never been to Tahiti, either, but I can imagine the sunsets having the same color palate.

I know I say it all the time... I love when you post the flowers with water drops on them!

I have yet to meet a rose I don't think is beautiful! Each has its own unique form and color and fragrance! They certainly are gorgeous creations!

It is so nice seeing all your pretty flowers. With 106 and up temperatures, mine are all gone.

Róża jest piękne i jeśli są zachody słońca w takich kolorach, to są równie piękne. Pozdrawiam.
The rose is beautiful and if you are the sunsets in such colors, they are equally beautiful. Yours
