Double Delight Rose

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

A long-time favorite rose of both Betsy and myself is Double Delight. We’ve had it in our garden for as long as we’ve had roses here in the Glade. The colors are gorgeous, and the fragrance is delightful. I took the photo of Double Delight several years ago, but then used Photoshop to turn the photo into a painting.

    Hello. Double Delight was my late father’s favourite rose. I used to grow a few bushes in my garden but they are prone to black spot and other fungal diseases in South Africa,so they died after about five years. They have a very interesting mix of red and white streaks and smell gorgeous. I miss them in my garden.
