Rose waffle again

Rose #2 flowered. Actually it happened several days ago, but I didn't have access to a camera then. It's now positively showing off. The old bloom, a new one, and at least four on their way. It's an awesome deep purple colour, that I'm really quite pleased with. It looked good in the picture when I bought it, but the blurb said that it wouldn't get its proper purple colour until it was a couple of years old. Looks pretty good to me already though! Smells awesome too.



ETA: This is Ebb Tide. I forgot to say that earlier.

It is, yes. :) It's called Ebbtide. It's pretty new.

I've never been remotely interested in flowers before, but for some reason I'm really into roses lately. I bought a couple for my parent's wedding anniversary last year, and realised just how many amazing types there are. This one really grabbed me though.

Intrigue is another good purple one, if you're on the market for more of those!

But Ebb Tide tends to do more clusters of roses.

Ebb Tide is flowering all over the place. It continues to impress me.

I'd like more, but space is a bit of an issue.

It is. So far seems a very prolific flowerer too (if that's a word)!

Wow! It's stunning!

(Also, on a Thin Lizzy kick myself, turn the volume up!)

They were a good band. I often forget that.

Lovely! You're good at picking rose varieties. Does that mean next year it'll be a deep purple to go with your rock 'n' roll rose? (groan, sorry)

I'm ignoring that. ;)
