Dreaming Along With Belinda

This is Belinda's Dream today.  Still performing wonderfully in our humid weather and hot temperatures. 

Here's a picture of the delectable blooms as they first start to open up well.  They have a sweet fragrance and a pleasing form.

This is a picture of the whole bush as it looked two days ago.  You can't see the buds well because of my poor photography, but you can get an idea of how the bush looks.  There are a few discolored leaves, but by and large this plant is unaffected by blackspot.  It has basically no leaf loss from the disease.  That fact makes this rose a huge winner for my area.  Notice the full form of the bush.  This is my ideal in a rose.  Notice the lack of "naked legs" as well.  This is how a shrub rose should look!

I'm finishing up with a picture of Belinda's Dream at peak performance in April.  Wonderful!
