I have said before that a hundred years ago
when I was a baby florist, I had no passion for Roses.
For me the Anemone, Delphinium, Ranunculus,
the unusual, the rare, the "special".
I still favor the unusual and rare,
but look what they have done with the Roses.
This Rose was new to me .
Literally, a handful, in that when I spread
my hand over it, my hand was full.
The color is well represented in this photo.
What is missing is the fragrance...
dusky sweet old damask close your eyes and smile.
Capriccio..I have orderd some for Wednesday
