Now, just for fun, here are two blooms on the same plant, ex Vintage Gardens, taken today, August 14, 2017. The summer here in Fort Bragg, CA, has been cool and foggy; the plant was purchased as a gallon at the Celebration of Old Roses, in El Cerrito, CA, in May, 2017. All the previous little blooms (this very young plant just wants to keep pushing blooms out) have begun and remained the deeper pink color, as in the photos posted by Cass (also VG) but this pale apricot bloom just opened from a pale apricot bud. Fascinating! (Sorry for quality of iPad photo.)

Though this isn't an artful shot, I took it when I wanted to remember the name of this rose and how well it looked after a hot, dry spell had made its neighbors in the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden look frazzled. I also like its leaves, their color with the blooms and the architecture and the look of its canes.--5/11/17
