Sentimental Affections

Sentimental is one of my favorite roses for some odd reason.

Ordinarily I am not crazy about splashy-splotchy flowers, nor necessarily red roses. And I am not crazy about peppermint candies of which these remind most people.

But I love this rose! I think it maybe because it reminds me of those sensual Dutch paintings with the over-blown roses and fruit posed on a draped table.

I have a number of these bushes in both of my gardens.
