Kangaroo Paw and Rosa 'Felicia'

It's been a wonderful day for photographs today. A cloudy sky seems to enhance all the colours.

The rose in the background is a very old variety called Felicia. It would have to be one of my all-time favourites. It flowers almost all year long, just having a little rest period in August, and has the most wonderful rich perfume (a true old rose fragrance). I've planted it close to an outdoor sitting area along with other old-fashioned varieties of plants (heliotrope, scented geraniums, gardenias and rosemary) all with strong perfumes, so that we can be rewarded with all sorts of pleasant aromas as the breezes blow. Posted by Picasa
