Old Blush rose photo
Rose photo courtesy of Give me caffeine
The winter blooms seem to last surprisingly well as a cut flower. The shot shows one that I threw in a vase on a whim on Sunday morning. It's now Tuesday evening, so it's been there for three days and is still in excellent shape. Has faded slightly, but otherwise is fine. The red one with it is Gruesome Triplets, which was cut at the same time. It's still holding its shape fairly well but has faded and is starting to blue. Oddly enough, by this stage Old Blush has more scent than Gruesome, which is a complete reverse over the situation when they are freshly cut.

Shot for Billy, re comments about prickles. It doesn't have any, of any size, anywhere. Which is a surprise. As far as I know nobody has ever mentioned it being totally thornless. Of course this one has only been in the ground just over a year. It may decided to sprout fangs to rival a dragonfish, just to annoy me. On the other hand it was grafted two years before leaving the nursery, so you'd think it would've made up its mind by now. I have noticed that it does seem to like sprouting branches in odd places at right angles. You can see a few in the shot.

Log is about 350 mm at the visible end, and over well 400 at the other end. Amazingly, it didn't squash any roses. Peak water level must have been at least to the top of the log.

Just a fun bunch of things from the garden. Alister Clark is peeking around the corner at the far left. Next is Archduke Charles, with Blush Noisette blooms and buds either side. Marie Lambert down low, then a couple of Monsieur Tillier and Rosette Delizy, then another Archduke Charles and, last but certainly not least, Souvenir de St. Anne's. And a bit of Rotheca myricoides to top it all off. Which is obviously not a rose, but goes nicely with them.

Shot early in the morning. Picture shows the bloom at about life size on my monitor. Based on my (young) plant so far, the HMF description of around 3.25" (85mm) is a bit large. Mine are around 2.25" (60mm).
