My Favorite Mr. Thomas


The rose that appears on the top right of my blog is one of my favorites, Graham Thomas. Here are a few more shots of him from the Laguna garden because I just can't resist his charm. As you can see, he grows into a small tree in our rich clay soil. Tall, yellow and handsome!

Handsome he is! Definitely. Does he smell as good as he looks? Just curious. Thanks to Blotanical I found your blog. Nice garden you got there. It's so wonderful to see garden in various parts of the world - I get to learn so much!

Chandramouli, yes, he is fragrant too! Thank you for the nice words about my gardens.

I have Graham Thomas too but he isn't as healthy as yours, black spot (sigh). Still he keeps flowering and as you say has a lovely fragrance.

Best wishes Sylvia (England)
