Perfumed rose

I wish you could smell the scent of this rose. I was given it earlier in the week, from yet another gardener. It's nearly blown now, but every time I've been anywhere near it this week, its perfume is a gift given all over again. That perfect, rich, deep rose perfume you rarely if ever find in a florist's rose. The colour has deepened from red to burgundy, and those subtle shadings are just as beautiful.
