"Medallion" may be my favorite rose.


Top, peak bloom.

So beautiful!

I think the buds are prettier than the full blown bloom...

I'm not a big rose fan, but I like that it changes colors.

Lin, it is the color and the shades from bud to hip that I like so much.

Chuck, I think roses may be my favorite flower, though there are so many others that are gorgeous as well. (At some point I may have said on this blog that the dahlia was my favorite. Maybe my favorite is the one I'm looking at in the moment.)

Vee, they are gorgeous.

Grace, with you. I think the truest beauty is from opening of bud to peak bloom.

Shark, the variation in color as it ages is interesting.
