Do You Wanna Know A 'Secret'?

I went back to my local garden center and bought the other rose. It was between
'Secret' and 'California Dreaming'. 'Secret' won over my heart. I found another
awesome rose that was purple. In person the rose is a rich purple but in my
photo here it looks a little different.
'Secret', a hybrid tea, diease resistant and has a strong scent.

Here are some other beautiful flowers.





They had a huge collection of pots of every color. I liked the blues.

The 'secret' rose is lovely in that it has several colour tones to it. I love your photography of flowers it is so intense.

Wow what beautiful roses! Those pots are beautiful too, I have been wanting some oversized pots for a while now.

I bet the rose sure is prettier in person. I'd so love to meet her. I bet your garden is the best place ever for long talks and delicious coffee!

I recently went to a rose garden and realized that photographs are no subsitute for natural beauty. Jealous that you got to see a deep purple rose.

Beautiful roses and the white hibiscus is beautiful....They offer those here, but I do not know how they would survive the winters...We has many when we lived in California!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Your photos are lovely. Could you please tell me the name of the purple rose? I am passionate about purple, anything especially flowers.
Thank you and blessings.

Your secret rose is gorgeous....But how can you go wrong??

pretty!!

Lynn said...

Me again. Please do not worry about the name of the purple rose. I just love the color so much. Most likely not a Florida rose and would not grow here. Seeing the beautiful picture is just fine. I can always search on line. Thank you for getting back to me. Blessings on your week.

Beautiful choice. I love them all. I keep looking for places in my garden here I can plant new rose bushes. I am afraid that I am outta space.

Just gorgeous!! That sounds like the rose for me, I need something that is disease resistant. Maybe one year I will try to grow roses again.
