Purity


The Lady Emma Hamilton Rose continues to flower in the garden. Not wanting to be outdone by any of the other flowers it grew a four foot stem with ten Rose buds on it.
The scent is lovely and strong, and the Apricot coloured Rose glows in the grey days of October.
The garden is slowly slowing down, ready for its winter slumber.
I want more Roses for next years garden, these photos will inspire me over the winter.

Lady Emma very beautiful indeed, strong scented as well iy like that. It's so boring and disappointing when you see a beautiful rose and when you smell it it says nothing, utterly boring. / Tyra

Scented, long-bloom and coral - that's quite a combination and a lovely photo. I've posted fall leaf photos today (Muskoka region Ontario). The newspapers had said Muskoka was at 100% leaf colour - basically it doesn't get any better.

Beautiful rose! I also have many roses growing tall and still so fragrant in my garden!
