Belle Story Bloom Progression

aimeekitty(9-10, SW 18)March 17, 2010

Per ya'lls advice, I clipped all but one of the buds off my new baby roses, except Belle Story, which was a larger plant (5 gall). There's buds all over her, but this is the first one to full bloom.

I took each photo at about the same time of day, a day apart. I love how the bloom changes from hotpink at the bud to a soft peachy pink as it opens.

I guess I need to go to the nursery and check to see if I need to fertilize again or something, soon... been so busy!!

My bare roots have a few leaves and leaf-buds on them. This one is Cl. Eden (from Austin)

Isn't it amazing what comes from such a small bud? Beautiful.

I am amazed by the beauty unfolding. Really amazed!! What a gorgeous bud!!! That is my fav color for roses!!! If I ever find it here, I am going to get it. I've always been intrigued by Belle Story, but now, I'm a woman on a mission - I must get this rose!!!

Thanks so much you guys!

Carol, I fell in love with Luanne Wilson's Belle Story on this forum, so I had to get it!

I really like the color of the flower (with the yellow base kindof like tiffany) and the shape of the rose is very full, open and round.... love the petals, too!

Very pretty Aimee! Celeste says Belle Story is one of her bees' favorites. Hope you will have honeybees enjoying your rose! I am hoping that mine will enjoy my new antique roses...
