Since there were two roses in the original "New Day" rose package, I assumed the other one was also "Burgundy Surprise" even it had not bloomed at the time I wrote the previous post. It did have a couple of buds already developed, and the bud color looked similar to the one from Burgundy Surprise.
Well, today when I came back home from work, I found those buds opened, and guess what? It is not the same as "Burgundy Surprise", definitely another kind!
What do you think of this one? Isn't it a delightful color? It also has mild scent when you get close. For me, I don't mind this mix-up any more. I just got two more varieties I did not expect, and they ARE beautiful, and different from other roses that I already had.
It is kind of midium-sized pink lavender color (has the shade variation on the same pedal) rose. Anybody knows the name?? (I have to say not knowing the name is the only annoying part of this whole mix-up thing...)
Oh, when taking the pictures, I noticed every one of my rose bushes had some leaves looked like this.
Did I have some uninvited visitors in the garden who love to nibble my rose leaves? Who could the visitors be?
Oh, this rose corner sure is giving me lots of surprises! At the same time, it is a beautiful garden corner I am in love with!
