A wedding feast

The first new season’s bloom has appeared on The Wedding Rose. This rose was planted earlier this year, not long after the family wedding we had celebrated.

Upon closer inspection a “wedding guest” has enjoyed a feast on this bloom.

I suspect a katydid has scissored off some tasty mouthfuls of this lovely flower. The warm, creamy petals do look good enough to eat. I may have to search for the unwanted guest and relocate it elsewhere in the garden to avoid further blooms being munched on.

Here is a link to more information about Katydids which include some stunning photos.


The Wedding Rose blooms in our garden

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
