double the delight

The double delight rose is one of my favorite flowers. I first fell in love with them because they grew outside my fiance's house during his last year in school. The photo below was taken of a flower that grew at his house.

Therefore, when given the opportunity to plant some flowers at our house - I knew that one of them had to be the double delight. After a few failed attempts to graft roses from his old house, we bought a bare root rose bush from the Summer Winds nursery in Mountain View. The rose below is the first bloom it has produced.

It isn't as pink as I would have expected. However, the fragrance is very strong. I am looking forward to seeing how it changes as it continues to bloom. I am just happy to have kept the plant alive long enough for it to bloom!
