Double Delight

A Story of Delight Doubled

Double Delight
In a quest to select July’s Rose of the Month, I recently visited the Fuller Park Rose Garden. My intent was to select a deep red variety to represent our nation’s birthday. That did not happen. 


Instead, I was lured in by the delicate but full, deep pink and rich butter colored petals of one of my favorite’s, Double Delight. The sweet, delicious smelling fragrance lured me closer. As always, I lingered inside the sensory stimulation and smiled from ear to ear. I took a half step back to load this pleasurable experience into my memory, deciding to capture true perfection in a photograph. Walking away, I turned back for one more peek at nature’s gift to me that day, the magnificent Double Delight.


I encourage you to treat yourself to the pleasure of the Double Delight now blooming at the Fuller Park Rose Garden. For additional information, please click on this link: Double Delight.
