Double Delight




On this cloudy morning I'd like to show you 
Double Delight.

From bud:


to full bloom.



This is what she looks like today (before the rain) blooming in Musashi's Garden.
A Double Delight in color and her fragrance is heavenly .. just like a rose should. 

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Absolutely stunning.. I smell its fragrance all the way here in Missouri! Snap I see you love Buddhism, me too. Meditation and mindfulness have helped to mellow out my anxiety~dukkha that I have lived with all my life. Namaste.

Oh did this ever bring back wonderful memories. We haven't had a rose garden for years and years, but when we did (back in Oregon), the Double Delight was our favorite. Even back then, it was rare to find a beautiful rose with that perfect rose fragrance and (just as you say) this one fills the bill.

Double Delight was my dear mother's favourite rose - yours looks really delightful!

Love your mosaic!

Hello Dragon Lady,
I am your new follower. It's funny, my Mom's nickname is Dragon Lady, but for a very different reason than yours. She is a very tough lady and is very proud of that. And since she was born in the year of the dragon, she loves it when we call her The Dragon Lady. I can't remember how that nickname started, but we still affectionately call her that today. I really enjoy your blog and will be following you. Christa

How gorgeous, and a treat to see, we are still buried in snow.

Ida said...

I love this Rose, I use to have one but mine died. I may need to get a new one now. Your blooms are just wonderful.

Lorrie said...

How beautiful, from bud to full blossom. Your garden must be a delight for the senses.
