Siren's Keep - a long, long wait
Purchased from RVR in 2009 as a tiny band and neglected shamefully in the years right after beloved DH passed, dug up and moved to my new home last summer, would you believe that my Siren's Keep has grown more this year than ever before and finally presented me with its first bloom - astonishingly perfect and beautiful. Worth the wait, I'd say, and I'm hoping it will really take off from here. It must like it's new home. :-)
And I have to throw in a slightly unfocused photo of Blue for You as well as I think the color of this rose is marvelous. Actually, they're both marvelously colored, but each in a completely different way.
