Sunlit Garden



Once again the mystery rose is blooming.
I call it the mystery rose because I don't know it's proper name.
It's a beauty.
Probably my favorite rose -- the wonderful peachy/apricot color.

It is a beautiful round and fully filled rose, gorgeous color, warm and intense. I can imagine it is your favorite. What a difference between your rosy world and our snowy world!
Does the rose have a lovely perfume?

Well, you know the line about "a rose by any other name..."

It really is a beautiful colour, Snap. I wish I could take a sniff and enjoy its fragrance.

Thanks for bringing your favourite rose to "Sunlit Sunday" and have a lovely week. (I've made not of the Yeats quote.)

That second photo is magnificent...the petals!!! It's as if you could reach out, touch it and feel it through the screen.

Still no proper sunlight here (days and days of dull) so this has perked me up and done me a world of good. Thank you for sharing and spreading your sunshine! xo

That close-up is gorgeous! I can almost feel the silky petals. And I love the quote by Yeats, too.

Hi Snap
I know there is a beautiful yellow rose called 'Evelyn' as it was my late mother's name.
Why don't you give yours a name?
