We had a wedding at Xmas time 2011 and my husband (father of the groom) received a rose for his Xmas present from the newly weds. The rose is called “The Wedding rose”.
It has put its roots down into the garden and is responding to water, feeding and mulching by putting out new blooms.
I took my camera out in the dusky light last evening and captured this lovely bloom.
I went looking today for a quote about roses and really enjoyed the cleverness of this quote. It also seemed appropriate for a rose that commemorates weddings.
“Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.”
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
