The Yellow (and Pink) Rose of Brisbane

A little while ago, I posted this photo amongst my garden shoot:

It was quite a popular photo, so the following weekend, I went and photographed some more buds on the same rosebush. This rose is beautifully complex. It starts as a yellow bud and then opens with pink tips on the petal. As it matures, it turns completely pink. Now…. you know I love pink, but I think this rose is incredibly beautiful in yellow.

And below is a larger look at the rosebush which shows the progression in one shot. There is actually a cluster of 5 roses around the base as well – such a crazy little plant.

          I have a small front garden and a large back garden. Nothing fancy, just garden beds, simple and low maintenance. But fascinating micro worlds await!!

            How cool. I live on the 21st floor. No yard, no garden. I do have some indoor plants, but no flowers…until the fern flowers.

              I had the opportunity of getting an 18th floor apartment in Melbourne but I think Gidget needs a little garden too.

                I’m not a real fan of high-rise living…I mean, what if there’s a fire, or earthquake. But the view is good. I just read on another blog you are selling your place? Where is it, Mebourne? Does the garden come with it?

                    I’m looking for a home, a place to settle down. Always wanted to live in OZ. They used to pay for people to move there. I can’t believe I didn’t do that then.

                      Did they really pay people? Wow. It’s definitely a great place to live.

                      Baddie, you should come to australia, you’d fit right in. the people they paid to come to our fair country were the “ten pound pommies”. you won’t be able to bring Duncan though. There’s border checks.
