The Delightful Queen in June!!

This is the wonderful multi-double stamen-heart of the magnificent "Reine des Violettes" ancient Rose, or The Queen of the Violettes!


It is the only originally ancient Rose in our garden, since I have a special love for the Modern Rose Shrubs, and in Floribundas and English Roses ( David Austin) in particular....


But she.... She is SO special!! Not just her strong Ancient Rose scent! Not just her multi-double elegant form!! But THAT colour-shade!!! Neither violet, nor Indian Pink! Something in the middle, or.... both!! Cause, from the moment the lovely bud unfolds the Beauty, the bloom acquires different shades of Violet Pink each day, according to the light and the temperatures!! You know!! Those Divine Miracles performed by Mother Nature!!......


**** PLEASE, FORGIVE ME, for NOT visiting a lot your streams these last couple of days!! I still work in the ....Flickr neigbourhood, though, but just somewhere else, ...quite close to you...For YOU!! ...Cross my heart!!...
