💜 I guess it's the type of Rose, but this one seems to fade and lose petals a lot quicker than the others @rachelbrooks

Morning Everyone, well was supposed to start new job this morning, but a little thing called 'Not being able to prove I'm British' has got in the way, awaiting full birth certificate, and now start next week!! So I'll just enjoy the blooms this little lady keeps throwing out instead 💜 #rose #rhapsodyinblue

@jasonsparkes1 - doesn't it have a wonderful perfume, I'm so glad that someone else on here has this rose as it's the only one I've ever grown 😳but sad to say it's nearly over here, it's been battered and drenched and nearly ruined (you would know about that 😪) I discovered today it has one little bunch of buds surviving 👏🏻

Aww Gillian shame about yours, this is one of the few that is sheltered by other plants so was quite protected, as for the scent, it's quite breezy here most of the time, so I haven't noticed it yet 💜 @pottybird42

@jasonsparkes1 - Oh you must go and put your face right up to the flowers, it is sooooo lovely!! As I'm a 'wrinkly' it reminds me of roses in my mums garden ☺️

Thank you @brightcolours @lesliecole49 @gjones Odd (to me) flowers, buds very dark an the more they open the more they fade colour down to a pale lavender colour, but happens quite quickly
