Obssesion renewed

Ambiance, Cool Water and Amnesia roses with camellia leaves

Amnesia and Cool Water roses being a current obsession. Current, not new. Since first encountering  Sterling Silver in a florist's shop in San Francisco, some 30 years ago, I  have had a thing for mauve coloured roses. They hark back to a different time. A time when  blue mink and Kerry Blue Terriers were fashionable, and cars had suicide doors.
