I bought a most glorious rose at the Pomona Markets on Saturday … it’s a French Delbard rose called “Henri Matisse”, from the Delbard Painters series. It’s an expensive rose because the breed is patented by Delbard, though worthwhile for its fascinating beauty and perfume. My new rose bush has three new buds which will open in a few days.
The last rose I acquired a year ago was a lovely yellow full bloomed variety which has a heady perfume and is a delicious creamy rich yellow. I’ve converted the photos I took of these two beauties into wallpaper for download by rose afficionados and other floral fanatics.
