Story of a rose
You must know how much I love roses by now. There is something very pleasing about seeing a rose in all stages of bloom. From the tightly closed petals of a little shy bud to its glorious first day of bloom right up to its last moments as a fading rose, when its petals takes on a new texture and starts to fall.This Charles de Gaulle rose has become one of my favourite roses. It looks and smells beautiful and certainly lasts more longer any other variety in my garden. I usually cut them for the house, but decided to leave these out so everyone can enjoy them.
