A Voluptuous Valentine ♥♥♥


 And doesn't this rose live up to its name?

Jackson and Perkins 2005 Rose of the Year® winner.

"Exceptionally high-centered, fully petaled, cupped blooms 
and satiny, deep fuchsia-pink petals. 
Tall, upright, full-branched, disease-resistant plant."

 My Honeyman gave this rose to me many years ago, 
a favorite in my rose garden...
and it always brings joy when it blooms.  

Lovin' my Sweetheart today and forever...
 You still put the skip in my step!

Happy Valentines!

    This is beautiful and well named. Guess I'm a honeyman too as I also raise our own honey right in the beehives.
