Wild Blue Yonder




No, I'm not getting ready to fly off into the wild blue yonder!

In this case, Wild Blue Yonder is the name of a floribunda rose currently blooming
in Musashi's Garden -- even in this horrible heat!





Wild Blue Yonder


Almost a purple color with a smattering of white.

It even smells good -- like a rose should.

I don't believe this rose bloomed at all last year.

I have it planted in a pot and moved it to a new spot. 

Guess Wild Blue likes the new location.

I like seeing your beautiful rose to start the day. Sometimes we just need a change of scene - maybe the rose did too. Stay cool, Snap.

I am impressed! That is one tough rose to be blooming so prettily in this weather.

I don't believe how hot you all are down there. We are humid to beat the band. Just shows you the resilience of our beautiful plant life that it can bloom with all that heat..xox

Wild Blue is such a gorgeous flower! I've been MIA from Blogland for way too long. I've missed your beautiful photos.

PS - it's hot here, too...109º today!

Hi there!

Lovely to meet you! Your Wild Blue sure has a passion for life! It's amazing how changing a flower's spot literally brings it back to life. You know what they say in the real estate business, "Location, location, location!!"

Lovely rose, will it stay in the pot? I've never tried that but it sounds like it would be great to move things around.

Just beautiful!

Before I read a word of your post I looked at the photo and thought 'that rose must surely smell beautiful'...and I'm so glad that it does!

I am loving this Wild Blue! Roses! They can be a finicky bunch. But when they find a spot they like, oh how they can thrive.
