This is a rose bud from one of my antique roses – Compte de Chambord. This rose’s flowers put out a strong rose perfume scent. I love being in my garden in the early morning, early evening or just after I’ve watered when these roses are in bloom as the scent is heavenly.
Of course this rose is not blooming now. It’s warmed up here in Toronto, but it’s only a mid-winter thaw … but soon … soon, my flowers will start to grow again.
