In yesterday's post I wrote about my confusion over the simple pink rose that I am quite fond of and not quite sure of which rose it is, 'Betty Prior' or 'Dainty Bess'. To make things worse, here is another rose that I have growing, actually there are three of them, in another spot. The variety of weather we have been having doesn't help the situation because the rose blossoms can vary in character based on the climate. Many of my white roses are taking on a distinct pink hue and my pale pink 'Sally Holmes' have dark pink splotches prompting many visitors to ask me what rose it is when it is such a common one.
To add to the confusion and to reiterate that I have no sense of discipline and focus when I am at a nursery, this 'Bubblicious' rose came home with me last week and hasn't even been planted yet! I am going to get my label maker out right now!
