We are the proud owners of our first two rose blooms. Right up until the day they began to open we were thinking we were going to have red or magenta blooms, when we had specifically picked out a lavender-blooming rose. But the next day, when the rose opened fully, we discovered that it was exactly the color we wanted.

Rose Neptune - one of our first two blooms
Fragrance is not the first attribute I look (sniff) for in a plant, but these roses really smell wonderful. And we both love this color. I hope that we can be so lucky as to have this new little bush produce more buds throughout the summer.
