Orange Roses

A little bit of summer in a vase – orange roses basking in the morning sunshine streaming in through my window 🙂

Word Prompt: Hybrid

I love roses of every shape and form, but I know very little about them. I know the biggest and best are cultivated blooms rather than occurring naturally, and I think these beauties growing in the garden area of our local church are probably hybrid tea roses. ‘Hybrid’, presumably, because they are deliberately cross-pollenated or whatever to achieve a particular size and shape and colour, and tea because… er… um… maybe historically they had a similar fragrance to tea plants? 🙂
