Woke up this morning to bright sunshine and a cool temperature. There had been a shower of rain overnight which put a sprinkle of 'dewiness' on this beautiful rose - the last of our season.

It's called Yvonne Kenny - named after a famous Australian opera singer.

Just had to show you what a gorgeous bloom this one is and what a blessing that it is just outside my kitchen window where I can look at it each time I need to do something at the kitchen bench.

I'm off on my first 'experimental' walk and will let you know how it goes.

That's lovely, I"m usually no good with roses but I have an iceberg standard rose that seems to be doing well thanks to the wonders of sheep poo, my favourite type however is dublin bay - love the red!
Thanks for your offer with the family searching, trouble is I have names and no dates so I"m trying to get what I have verified but no one in the family knows...
