Good evening GTers! Nearly all of the petals on my patio roses were knocked off in the storm last night but a couple have managed to hang on! This one in particular caught my eye this afternoon! πŸ˜€

Good evening GTers! It has been a wet day and I've been looking back through my photo archive to see what garden gems I could find from years gone by! This beautiful #yellow #rose graced my garden for a number of years until it succumbed to black spot a couple of years ago! I thought it was worth another viewing! πŸ˜€
