Rose of the Week: Peace

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

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

Peace is said to be the most popular rose in the world.  This hybrid tea was introduced near the end of World War II, and millions of bushes have been sold.  I got my first Peace rose in the mid-1970s, when I lived in North Carolina, and it was one of the first roses Betsy and I got here in the Glade.  The yellow, pink-edged blossoms are always a treat.  It has a mild fragrance as well.

This and the last rose are beautiful. The red one is well photographed as there is nod 'red' bleeding. The Peace rose has lovely colours.

I may have commented that others are my favorite in the past, but I really do believe this one is my favorite! Maybe because peace is something on my mind lately. We recently spent time in a park with a "Peace" theme.. a Peace Bell, Peace Garden, Peace quotes engraved on plaques and benches throughout the park. The timing and power of the simple word aren't the only reason though - it's a beauty!
