SHOWERS to the SOUL… Just Joey Rose by magdaindigo

Tears are the summer showers to the soul.
Alfred Austin

One of the last roses this year in the garden, it was rained on (hence the water-drops), and the wind was blowing this beauty mercilessly about, I took pity on it, and brought it in.
“Just Joey” is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994.

The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. Hybrid Teas are the world’s most popular type of rose by choice due to their colour and flower form. With their long stems, it gives them the advantage, over others, as cut flowers.
Most shrubs tend to be very upright, reaching up to 1.8 metres and are recurrent-flowering (flowering constantly during the season, unlike wild dog roses that flower once).

Each time I think… that’s it, there’s only so much you can do with flowers… and yet again and again, I’ll see something new.
Being creative is not a choice… it is an urge in me.…

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for your time and comments, M, (*_*)
