Chameleon

Something strange is happening in my garden....

Remember that pretty mini-rose bush I bought and put in a pot. Well,it's thriving. Which is fantastic. In the end, I didn't really need the filler plant. The rose has filled out the whole pot. And the other day, I got a pretty pale pink bloom.
It's even more robust (many more petals) than the roses that were blooming when I bought it.

Then today, I went outside to water and pick tomatoes (OMG .... soooooooo many tomatoes!!!) and I noticed this...
A very pretty new bud - but a billion times darker than the one that just bloomed. And then I got thinking.... wait a minute..... the original roses were a peachy-yelllow... not dark pink. Not even pale pink....

Has Alice been painting my roses?

My camellias did that to me this year. Plant hanky panky me thinks.

It must be garden magic! Do you have gnomes?

Some types of patio roses can change colour depending on the soil, the weather or even the mood of the plant. Expect the unexpected!

It's still a lovely rose even if it is a little confused.
