Rose of a Thousand Blooms

Dad called this the "Rose of a Thousand Blooms". We always had it growing at our place and it certainly lived up to its name. Sandra was adamant a spray of this was to be placed on her coffin at her funeral. The family were in panic this week because none could be found with flowers -- only buds. Miraculously one bud opened just in time for the Tuesday service. I now have that cutting, shown here, and plan strike it and plant it in memory of Sandra.

The "rose of a thousand blooms" flowered again so the family was able to put a spray of it on Sandra's Dad's funeral which was held on Saturday in Cairns.
