"The Dark Lady"

Hello,

Today I am linking up with Robyn for Colourful Friday and Bronwyn for Floral Friday. Now for Colourful Friday we are allowed to show just one photo with Red and Green. So for both these links I introduce to you "The Dark Lady"


The Dark Lady.

"The Dark Lady" is a David Austin rose which has large deep pink to crimson blooms, with a lighter reverse. It has a fine old rose fragrance with busy healthy dark foliage and spreading growth. It has continuous flowers. The name of this rose is taken from the mysterious Dark Lady of Shakespeare's sonnets.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Happy days.
Bev C

As always, your rose is perfect. What a great photo with all the droplets. We were in Subiaco last year and I was enthralled by all the beautiful roses growing in the lush gardens around the area. Look forward to more roses!

The Dark Lady is truly esquisite!!! It's like poetry, the mysterious name (don't know this Shakespeare character, so I'll make up my own story ;o)
Is this one actually growing in your garden?
