If you love large heavy petaled yellow roses, grow Golden Celebration. Patience is key when growing this rose. It’s old rose heritage takes a few years to come into her glory in the garden, but when she does, stand back! It’s a sight to behold. Here’s a fresh bloom from my morning garden walk.

Chris, you already live in heaven! 😉
Now, that is a good-looking rose. But I am anything but patient, so I should probably admire it in the gardens of others.
Jason, ha! i am one of the most impatient people alive… If the garden has taught me anything it is patience……
I must admit that I have very little patience for most things but in gardening you have no choice but to be patient. After all Mother Nature is in charge.
Reblogged this on speaknotwhispernot and commented:
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes 50
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name;
And for that name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.
— Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene II, by William Shakespeare
OK I give in, it looks like I will have to get some David Austin English Roses. One is just more delicious then the other.
This is a beauty.
Superb inroimatfon here, ol’e chap; keep burning the midnight oil.
