First Bloom for this Newbie!

This is my Double Delight Rose. I bought her along with a John F. Kennedy and a Mr. Lincoln. Go figure she was the first to have a bloom along with the two males. ;)

I couldn't contain my excitement so here she is. Her name shall be Aphrodite. (Excuse the corniness.)

Wait! She is even prettier as she ages. (Unfortunately, I can't claim the same!)

She's opening up so nicely now. And her scent is so fragrant!

Your first bloom looks great, congrats!

That IS nice!! I bought one this year, but I don't think it likes the cool rainy weather here.

I had one bloom that was bull headed. The foliage is gross (and I never have foliage disease here) and the growth is wimpy and scraggly. So far not impressed. LOL

I think I had better stick with the newer better performing roses for here.

Yours is lovely, and I can only imagine the wonderful fragrance.

Carol :)
