A timely visit from 'Tea Clipper'

Today is my birthday, and I got an early (and repeat) gift in the form of the blooming of my David Austin 'Tea Clipper' rose, a gift two years ago from my friend Deberah! You can read about the history of the rose here if you're interested, and I'm also intrigued that the color seems to be a little bit different each year. Always beautiful!

I really, really adore this radiant …

Ruffled …

Regal …

Rose!
