The first rose produced by our Blue Moon rose tree. It is my favourite rose because of its delicate colour, which varies according to the amount of sunlight it is receiving at any given time, and its exquisite perfume. Unfortunately it is not a hardy variety. It produces huge blossoms, but few of them, and they are very short lived. Still worth growing, however! Even here on the North-East coast of England! Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera in macro mode. Unframed version used for clothing and other products. Framed version for wall art only.
