Pink turned yellow

I am missing Jack. Therefore I am declaring this the week of the rose and posting photos of my few roses. 

According to the label on the pot this mini standard rose was supposed to be a Rosa Royal Pink. Despite the yellow blossoms the buds do show a pinkish peach shading.



I would probably not have chosen this one had I known it would turn yellow. Now I am glad I had the opportunity to broaden my horizons by accident. These blossoms faded away some time ago – again with some peach and hints of pink – but the rose is still pushing new buds. Thus far this has been a mild autumn.

  1. Kauniita ruusuja. Luin tämän postauksen linkistä aikaisemman postauksesi kissastanne Jackista, mitä en aikaisemmin ollut huomannutkaan ja kommentoin sinne hienoa postausta.

    1. Päätin muistella Jaskaa ruusukuvilla, kun en ole niitä ennättänyt kesän mittaan postata.

  2. Your rose is so full and I like the contrast of the colour too. I feel your pain. Sarah x

    1. I can't imagine how empty this place will feel in winter if we are to spend one more in this house.
