Winter in my Garden - A Nameless Rose at Sunset

Pin It
I am notorious for losing the name tags that come with my plants.  This sweet rose, blushed a rosy-orange by the setting sun the other day, is actually pink and pretty much blooms year round.  It has a sweetly citrus scent, is practically thornless, and has canes that would grow to great lengths if I didn't keep them cut back. If anyone knows its name, please chime in.
I took the photo this past Sunday, the day before the rains came back after more than four weeks of beautiful, if not bizarre for our region, sunny weather.

It may be nameless, but it is gorgeous! How delightful that it blooms all year! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Christine!

Cara Christine......Oh, before I read your lines under the magnificient Rose I wondered if it is the "Mariella Agnelli"; which I have got in my garden....; but mine does not have a citrus scent, it has got a very mild, fresh typically Rose profume!

.....However she might call herself...she is a SUBLIME ROSE.....and you captured her beauty magicly...!!!!

ciao ciao elvira

Thank you Sylvia. Happy photographing!

Cara Elvira, I truly don't know if that is the name of the rose but I don't think it is only because I think I would have remembered such a beautiful name. Thank you for your sweet comment.
