Premiering 'Leonidas' For Fall

These are photos of the first blooms of my new rose 'Leonidas' in my garden. I bought this
rose because it represents fall to me. Orange and yellow are my favorite colors for fall.




In the first week leading up to fall it has been blooming like crazy. This made me happy because
I wanted to post this rose on the first day of fall.



This rose looks like candy in my garden.
