My New Favorite Rose!

If you asked me what my favorite flower was, I don't think roses would be at the top of my list, but I am in love with this one!

This is definitely my new favorite rose - "Mirabai". I love the swirl of the petals. Yes, I totally get turned on by certain rose petal shapes! Florists will know what I mean, some petal formations are just way better than others, am I right?

And the color - well, the color is this rich, bright, but not really bright, antiquey rose that's warmer in the center and cooler in the outer petals. The photo really does not do the color justice.

I have no idea if this is a new variety of rose or if it's just new to me, new varieties are constantly popping up up, but I will be keeping my eyes open to get this again!

New to me as well! But I love it as well! I've always been a sucker for roses-so classic but yet constantly new varieties on the market. I've always loved the "muddy" colors-those that look a little "off" of what you'd expect, but so beautiful!

I typically like bright clear colors, but just recently I'm really liking those muddy and "off" tones you described...wait long enough and I'm sure to have a new favorite LOL, fickle girl that I am. ;-)
