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.
