Blooming Beautiful

Do you remember my Waiting In The Wings post from the 1st of May? I told of how my Golden Wings rose had, at last, been planted in the garden. I didn't notice the little bud on it at the time, but looking back at one of the photos, you can see it quite clearly. Here it is on the right hand side of the bush.


It didn't take long for that bud to open and here it is, taken on the 4th of May, in all its glory.


Isn't it beautiful? Such a pale yellow, just as I like, and the scent is fabulous, so sweet.

There's no sign of any more flowers at the moment, but I don't mind, this one will keep me going for a while.

    1. I didn't even notice the bud when I planted the rose so it was a lovely surprise a few days later when it bloomed.

  3. I don't think ours on the plot has a flower yet. I'm in the process of looking for a single flowered climber for the cold frame are of the garden and so far Meg is calling to me.

    1. I'm not sure whether I'll get more flowers this year or not, no sign of any yet. Have a look at British Roses where my rose came from, it was packaged really well and the plant looks nice and healthy.

    1. I'm really looking forward to it putting on some growth and being covered in flowers. It's only small at the moment but I'm sure it'll fill out.

    1. I love the pale colour, just a hint of yellow, more of a coloured cream. It has a gorgeous scent.

  12. A most attractive soft yellow Jo. Hope that you get more blooms this year but if not it will be worth the wait for it to mature and flower prolifically.

    1. It's taken me a long time to find this rose, but I knew just what I wanted so it was worth the wait. I'm hoping that it settles in well, so if that's at the cost of flowers this year, I don't mind.
