This glorious rose is growing outside my dentist’s and almost made me late for my appointment as I gazed at it. I asked her if she knew the name of it for my post and she said that a gardener patient thought it was a Seven-Sisters rose. It’s true there are 7 blooms on each spray, as you see here and after doing a little research I found that name is for one officially called Rosa Multiflora, with many names including floribunda and baby rose. As that particular variety blooms in early summer, I am not sure if this is really the name as we were well on into late August when I took this photograph. So, in honour of my dentist, a kind friend who does everything she can to support local artists I have decided to call this post by her name. The name the plant is given isn’t important at all: it’s the beautiful qualities that matter, as it does for people. If you are able to be near a good friend today, give a hug in whatever way you are able, as they enrich our lives, even more than flowers do. A Flower a Day #349 View all posts on the Home page.
