peace hybrid tea rose

peace hybrid tea rose
This popular variety was created by
French hybridzer, Madam Antoine Meillard (1945)
at the end of World War II.
The flower became symbol for the end of war.
While I'd like to join Mimi and gang to stand for Dona Nobis Pacem
-- my laptop crashed when posting the pictures!

Sorry about your laptop problem can be SO annoying. But...this picture is so gorgeous....OHHHH, one of my favorites so far. Thank you for posting such beautiful subjects.

joy: I lost in wonder at its beauty: the rose exudes fragrance and its gold or yellow color in the center with the pink lace around the petals glows in peace. Words cannot match that moment though.

And your words about Peace are quite wonderful, too!
