My current afternoon read

"Naming The Rose" by Roger Mann. A beautiful book that gives an insight into the people who have had roses named after them. It features stunning photographs by Yvonne Arnold (her work is shown above) and  Paul Barden, whose blog I only just discovered today. It's such a lovely read.

There is one special rose that I'm coveting. It isn't featured in the book but it too is named after a very special lady......

Rosa Hybrid Tea (Dolly Parton)

Can you guess who?

It wasn't that hard a question now was it? I love my Dolly!

This song is Haidees favourite :)

Wouldn't it be just beyond wonderful to have a rose named after you? I must check out that blog you mention.
