This is a rose from my lovely friend Christina. We have been waiting all year for it to bloom. Unfortunately its first bloom has a vegetative center. For those who do not know what that is it. this happens when the plant starts to grow another bloom inside of the one that is blooming. I am pretty confident I over fertilized and thus a green center. My friend Christina writes a lovely a blog called Organic Dreams. She gardens one hundred percent organic and even has worms for composting. I have a link in my side bar.

How can i even describe this magnificant rose. Its blooms are the perfect shade yellow. They are very large and full of petals. The smell is a fresh citrus smell. This is such a large bush i had to go on my neighbors side of the fence to capture a picture. You can even see the house tiles behind it. David Austin you are such a genius. Your roses are superb.....

I went that morning to pick up some cracked corn for them.... They stop by every morning and evening eat and fly away. .. Come the end of may the fly off to there next destination. I will not see them until spring the folllowing year...
