Roses from Our Garden: Saint Patrick

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

I have quite a bit of Irish in my background, so I just had to have this rose — Saint Patrick — in our yard.  It’s a little hard to tell in this picture, but when the blossom first opens the outer petals have a touch of green to them.  I guess that explains how it got its name.

I can see those touches of green at the edges. Very nice. The color reminds me of a butter mint.

Your photo of this lovely rose is perfect. And I do see the hint of green around the edges, but I would have missed that completely if you hadn't mentioned it.

I have one that looks similar, but the edges are pink. You and Betsy definitely have a green thumb.

Hi George, that's a lovely rose. You and your Mrs are very good in gardening. All the blooms from your garden are gorgeous. Very impressive.

Have a nice day, regards.
