Wednesday Afternoon Flower Photo

This is the lovely Souvenir de St Anne, a Bourbon rose. All of my roses are my favorite and this one is, too. It is fragrant, beautiful, self-cleaning (i.e., the spent blossoms fall off), and reliably repeats blooms throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Plus, I like how the shy little half petals curl over the stamens.

Very pretty Penny.
I envy you your photographic gifts, your roses and also the weather which allows you to photograph them.
If it ever stops raining long enough here, I'll try to post some new photographs on my blog, but, I'm not holding my breath.
Thank you, Ray - I actually took this photo with my iPad. I hope you'll get some dry enough days soon so you can enjoy your garden again.
