Heritage Rose

Each type of rose opens and displays petals a little differently. This gorgeous pink rose (front & center) is a David Austin English rose called "Heritage."

I picked it from the rose garden and created this arrangement when the bud was just beginning to open. You can see that it is sandwiched between two peonies and as it started to relax into bloom, the peonies held their ground and limited the space available. The result is this amazing circular bloom.

In the garden, wonders never cease.
