Sweetness Rose

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

Sweetness is one of the more unique roses we have in our yard.  It gets its name from the very pleasant fragrance it has -- I'm not sure I would say the fragrance is sweet, but it really is nice.  The pretty lilac color is also unique in our yard.

Sweet indeed! This reminds me to get outside and photograph some flowers before the frost gets them.

Very graceful shape as well. Do you have some late bloomers that keep on into November? Hope so. Loved yours and Betsy's recent photos from your trip to Kentucky.

I missed the days living in US where I could see the prettiest roses everywhere.

I have not seen this beautiful Sweetness before. I am sure your garden is fragrant now
