...and the whole arrangement.
This was a special first time for featuring The Alnwick Rose in a Monday Vase; it has been a favourite of mine since I saw it growing in my cousin's garden in San Diego, CA. I was very glad to find that the David Austin Roses catalogue recommends it for hot climate growing.
Not that it's very hot right now! Temperatures are expected to drop to 37 F (3 C) tonight and we had a soaking rain last night - a little bit of low desert winter for a day or two. How quickly one gets used to constant sunshine...!
Thanks to Cathy for hosting this wonderful meme at Rambling in the Garden!
