It’s that time of the year for my annual fix. My favorite rose is blooming in my friend Nilofer’s garden! It’s a David Austen climbing rose called Eden (rosa x meiviolin) Meiviolin was developed by Meilland.
These roses are perfect with their porcelain exterior petals and the crush of magenta petals at it’s center…
….which unfolds into a heavy pink cup.
A client who had purchased a paintings inspired by these roses for his girlfriend said that he could see women in these rose bud and blooms – I told him that’s how we saw ourselves too!
