rosa rugosa



Blanc Double de Coubert is in full bloom in the front of our house - undiscouraged by the rain and wind we've had in the past week. I stop and plunge my face into a blossom before setting out to go anywhere. So fragrant, and soft against my face. They don't last long in water - by tomorrow or the next day this one will have shrugged off its petals. But I picked it anyway.


I have two of these and wish I had more---they are so deeply and gorgeously fragrant.

I am amazed, as usual, with the quality of your art work. Thank you for sharing it with us.

What a wonderfully subtle and perfect use of that bluish grey colour. Beautiful.
