A Tale of Two Roses



Both of these roses are currently in bloom in my yard. The hybrid tea is Truly Yours, the other is an unknown (to me, anyway) old rose grown from a cutting. Both are beautiful, don't you agree?

Could it be a "Rosamunda" ? It looks very much like that one .. it was developed for Henry the 8th and named after one of his mistresses..

Beautiful, though, no matter what it is!

I'm a terrible rose grower because I pay absolutely no attention to them. The hybrids are so pretty, but I love the old roses best. I'm still waiting to see your stepping stones, Jenny.

A Rose by any name would smell as beautiful and look as gorgeous as it does on your post!!!
Both the roses look absolutely stunning.

Thanks for all the kind words! Cool having a rose developed for a mistress :).

Gorgeous roses I would say...I'm not sure what that one is.
