FOTD – September 5 – Blooming Rose

The first rose of the season bloomed in my garden last week, but i had a few photos of Australian native flowers to post and this is the first chance i have had to post it’s arrival. 🙂

2 days later, and just before Winter’s close, the rose on this 50+ year old bush looks as fresh as ever! 🙂

    • Thanks. 🙂

      It’s a stunning rose in that it can change colour so much in a week. I’ve had them begin as blood red buds to orange and then apricot, yellow and finally almost pure white as the flower opens then fades.

    • Thank you once more! 🙂

      I pruned back this bush around 6 weeks ago and this was the first and only flower it has produced so far. It will probably have around 5-6 more growth/flower spurts before i prune it next year with maybe another 50-70 flowers all up.
