Red Rose in the Marston House Gardens, San Diego, California

On an excursion to the Balboa Park area in San Diego yesterday afternoon, my sister and I encountered this perfect fragrant red rose along one of the garden paths at the historic Marston House.

It was such a lovely harbinger of spring (along with two cotton-tail rabbits), I had to share it with you.

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may!

  1. I think that is a Double Delight rose - red on the inside of the petals, white on the outside, extremely sweet scented. It is one of my favorites. It is sold by Jackson and Perkins.

  2. Thanks, rebecca jc! Double Delight it is!
