    Default First & Best

    This is the first Rose I ever grew, and it was about 10 inches across. Huge and fragrant too. Shame the picture is not scratch & sniff.

    Is that the scented victorian variety known as "Mermaid?" Had 1 where I was brought up and the huge flowers always amazed me.

    I have no idea what it was called. It's a shame, because I have since killed it when I transplanted it into the garden.
    I would have like to buy another, but it's all gone now.

    I wish your picture was scratch and sniff too, Lolabelle. The rose is a gorgeous colour, and I'd love to see a huge fragant one like that in reality!
    I am living for today, always remembering yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow!
